Mr. Dercks

Mr. Dercks began his career in education at Idea Charter School. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire with a degree in social studies education, and also has a background in science. He is thrilled to be involved in a school that is project-based, student-initiated and community-focused.

Mr. Andrew Dercks believes that the educational philosophy at Idea challenges students to develop critical thinking, research, time-management and collaboration skills that prepare them to succeed after Idea. He is excited to be working in a school that focuses on creating a safe, positive community. During his first year Mr. Dercks has enjoyed watching students mature as they begin to take ownership in their education.

Outside of school he stays involved in a variety of sports; you can often find him on a golf course. He also enjoys reading, cooking and spending time with his two young boys.
