    Welcome!

    Hello!

    My name is Chelsea Landers, and this is my first year here at CHS. Currently, I teach 9th grade English. After graduating from Georgia Southern University with my Master's of Arts in Teaching, I moved to the D.C. area. After some time there, I moved to Arizona with my husband Ryan and dog Oreo. Here, we started a family and laid down some roots. In October of 2020, we welcomed our baby girl Persephone into the world, and she lights up our lives. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

    My Education and Professional Background

    Over the last decade, I graduated from GSU with a master's degree. My first job was at Gar-field High School in Virginia; there, I taught 9th and 10th grade English. After moving to Arizona, I began working at Canyon Valley, which is an alternative school with Gilbert Unified School District. I also taught 9th and 10th grade; however, the age range varied. I could have a student who is twenty-two sitting next to another who is fourteen. Differentiating my lessons was of the utmost importance. How do I make a lesson rigorous for those in different age ranges? The answer: assessing students' individual needs. I truly cater to what each individual needs. After 3.5 years with Canyon, I began working here at CHS. I am excited to see what this new experience brings! 

    My Educational Philosophy

    Every student can learn, but it is up to me to give them the right tools. In doing so, I let students know I understand they have lives outside my room. Treating them like people rather than bodies in a room, allows me to have a better success rate in my classroom. Setting up a classroom with structure and routine also shows the students I am someone they may depend on. Finally, learning must be fun and engaging. Students should never leave my room negatively. If they do, I want to work with them to make things better.
