David DeRoos

Band Teacher

What year did you start teaching at Siouxland Christian?


If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would you share?

Always ask questions and always ask "Why?"

Is there a Bible verse or quote/saying that you live your life by?

"If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand." - Mark 3:24

How will you incorporate the Siouxland Christian mission statement into your teaching?

I incorporate this mission statement into my teaching by running my classroom in a democratic way. Where students are free to suggest ideas and ask questions as they need.

In which other teacher's class would you like to enroll, just for a day?

I'd like to jump into Mrs. Stevens Computer Science class, I feel like I would want to learn a bit more about coding and other technical aspects to computers.

Why did you want to become a teacher?

I wanted to share my passion of music with others and help people to feel the same way I do about music. I chose to teach at Siouxland Christian because I can go into more depth about the religious connotations behind the music.

What inspires you?

It inspires me when I'm able to help student's truly understand a difficult subject, not just with my help, but when they're able to think through the problem themselves.
