Mr. Coach Chandler

Hello and welcome to my website!  I am the Reading, Health, and Physical Education teacher at The Bijou School.  I graduated from Bijou in 2005 which propelled me into a life of health and happiness.  I have found my unique potential through working as an Outdoor Educator and Program Manager for various Outward Bound schools.  I have taught in traditional and alternative school settings in the great cities of Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Denver, and Colorado Springs.  I have been in the field of education for over 12 years now; two years of which at Bijou.  My instruction is supported by an Associates of Arts in Outdoor Education (Colorado Mountain College), a Bachelors of Arts: History (Colorado State University), and a Masters of Education: Curriculum and Instruction (American University).  Lastly, I am a proud father of two beautiful girls named Joan and Dorothy-"Dottie".
