Mr. Derek S. Wooten
My name is Mr. Wooten. I am the music & orchestra teacher here at Midland Academy. This is my sixth year here at this wonderful campus. I served eight years in the Unites States Navy as an Operations Specialist. I have worked in television as a graphics operator and in master control for approximately twelve years. I have an Associate’s Degree in Broadcasting from Odessa College. My real passion is music and making music fun for children. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities with a music emphasis from UTPB and perform with the UTPB Symphony Orchestra playing the double bass. I also perform with my church playing the viola and bass guitar.
I have been married to my beautiful wife for seven years.
We have three dogs (two Chihuahuas - Hope and Sadie - and one shepherd mix - Tippy); and two cats - Penelope and Daphne.
