Summer Chandler

Hello! My name is Summer Chandler, and I am from Washington, Iowa. I am a first year teacher, and I'm fortunate enough to be part of an amazing 3rd grade team at Kirkwood Elementary.

On my journey to become a teacher, I went to Kirkwood Community College where I got an Associate of Arts Degree. I then transferred to the University of Northern Iowa where I got a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  Before joining the Kirkwood family, I student taught in Washington, Iowa and then went on to be a long-term substitute at their elementary school.

I am the oldest of eight children, and in my free time, I like to listen to live music, play sports, and spend time with friends and family. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work alongside such an amazing staff at Kirkwood Elementary!
