Meet the Assistant Principal

DericcoMy name is Dan DeRicco and I am the new Assistant Principal here at Central Elementary School. My educational background began at Moravian College obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Elementary Education. I then completed my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership with California University of Pennsylvania.

I began my educational career as a Title 1 Math Coach in the Easton Area School District at Cheston Elementary School. I then began working at South Mountain Middle School teaching various levels of mathematics in grades 6th to 8th. While at South Mountain I mentored various groups including Mission Possible, Credit Recovery and Gay Straight Alliance. I coached the school’s boy’s volleyball team for 5 exciting seasons. I was named team leader for a group of 8th grade teachers and a CRE group of educators and staff. Also, I was awarded Teacher of the Year from our Superintendent in the 2018-2019 school year.

I look forward to working with the staff, students and administration here at Central Elementary School. I feel confident that together we can ensure the school is a safe and welcoming atmosphere that will promote success for all of our staff and students.
