Mr. Derrick Pate


My name is Derrick Pate. I was born and raised right here in Johnston County, and I have two children in the Johnston County school system.  I attended UNC-Pembroke and Campbell University and have been teaching for 20 years.  I enjoy being active and outdoors and enjoy the energy that the students bring to school everyday.  I look forward to working collaboratively with the students and learning with them this year!
