I graduated from Grundy County High School in 2009. I earned my B.S. in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in K-6 from Tennessee Tech University.


I recently became certified to teach 7th and 8th grades. 


I am in my sixth year of teaching.

While attending Tennessee Tech, I was required to work in my field multiple times. My first experience was at Harris Middle School in Shelbyville, TN. After completing that training, I worked and taught in a 3rd grade classroom at Palmer Elementary School in Palmer, Tennessee.



My name is Derek Moon, and I was born and raised in Pelham, TN. As a graduate from Pelham Elementary School, I consider Pelham to be my home. I am happily married to my wife, Hillary Moon,who is a teacher at Palmer Elementary. I love my job and enjoy having the opportunity to educate our youth! 

Outside of teaching, I enjoy watching sports! Football is my favorite sport, but I also enjoy basketball and baseball. I am a huge Alabama fan! ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
