Hi  it's nice to meet you

My name is Derek Sprecksel. It is an honor to be the assistant principal at Jacobson Elementary School. This will be my second year at Jacobson.  It was very rewarding working with the students, staff, and parents at Jacobson last year.  Prior to becoming an administrator, I was a teacher at West High School for sixteen years.  I also coached boys’ basketball at West for fourteen years, in addition to serving as athletic director for five years.  My wife Jennifer teaches English at Stein High School.  We have three children (two sons and one daughter).  I look forward to another great school year in 2019-2020!
