Derek Heinz PE Coach/Assistant Principal Mountain View High School (Vancouver, WA), Western Washington University (Bachelors of Arts), Washington State University (Masters of Education Administration) Read more Hello, CHA students and families! I am very happy to join CHA and to meet everyone. Of course, I’m especially excited to work with the kids! I have taught for 22 years and love teaching kids of all ages. In fact, most of my experience has been in the high school classroom, teaching English (Shakespeare, AP, American Literature, etc.). I have coached quite a bit of varsity soccer and basketball (both boys and girls), too. For the last four years I was a Dean of Students at a middle school. Though I enjoyed that, I often found myself longing to work with students once again in more of a teacher role. So, here I am at CHA! Aside from teaching, I also enjoy coaching soccer at Eastside Football Club, and on the rare occasion that I’m not teaching or coaching, I’m often either spending quality time with my daughter, on a river fly fishing, or relaxing with a good book.
