    Hello!  My name is Chris Dickerson and I am our district's Virtual Academy Coordinator. I am originally from King of Prussia, having attended both Candlebrook Elementary School and the Middle School before moving to the Souderton Area School District.

    In my undergrad, I attended West Chester University, where I received a music degree. I taught private piano and played at a hotel for several years before pursuing a Master's Degree in Elementary Education at Cabrini University. Before arriving at Upper Merion in 2017, I taught in Philadelphia and the Norristown Area School District. In my teaching career, I have had the unique opportunity to teach almost every grade level K-6th, just missing out on 1st and 2nd! In 2018, I finished my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Principal Certification from Holy Family University.

    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, Naomi, and my wife, Liz who is a kindergarten teacher.

    If you have any questions about the Virtual Academy, please feel free to reach out.
