My name is Derek Omar Vasquez. I am the new high school band director here in Tulia. This is my third year of teaching, and I could not be more excited to work with your students this year. I am originally from Stratford TX, but am super excited to begin my second year here in Tulia. My wife Sydney Vasquez teaches second grade at Highland Elementary. We both love this community and are eager to help our students succeed in any way possible!
I started my band directing carreer back in 2016 in Stratford as the head junior high band director. I was given the oppourtunity to lead the junior high band in Tulia in 2017.
I am excited to lead the Tulia High School Fightin' Hornet band this year.
