Mr. Larry Derr - High School Principal

I have been employed by Glenburn Public School for 11 years. I started my teaching career in Physical Education for 3 years and moved into Administration after that time. Besides my Principal duties I am also the 9th - 12th grades Activities Director and Head Boys Basketball Coach. My Bachelors Degree is from Minot State University and my Masters Degree is from North Dakota State University. I am currently the Region I Director for the North Dakota Association of Secondary School Principals. I have 4 wonderful children and a beautiful wife who teaches third grade in Glenburn. My educational goal is to help all students become college or career ready when they leave Glenburn. I am a huge sports fan. I love the Kansas City Royals, Chicago Bears, LA Lakers and the Michigan Wolverines! Who could forget the NDSU Bison! We love to spend our free time outdoors as a family. 

Challenge of the day! Find Something Good In Everyone! 


Mr. Chris Doane - Elementary School Principal

This is my 2nd year at Glenburn Public School.  I started my teaching career in Pennsylvania and moved to North Dakota in 2015.  After teaching 2 years in Williston, I decided it was time to start my administrative career.  Along with being the Elementary Principal, I am also the 5th - 8th grade Activities Director.  I received my Bachelors Degree from East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania and will be receiving my Masters Degree from the University of Mary in Bismarck at the end of this summer.  Growing up in New York, I became a huge NY Yankee fan, but somehow I chose to be a Denver Broncos fan, maybe I knew one day that I would live closer to Denver so that was the team that I chose.  My wife (Donna), daughter (Addyson) and I are happy to be a part of the Glenburn community.
