Mr. Rother


 Welcome to Chandler High School, “School of Champions.”  I’m excited for my fourth year as Principal of Chandler High.  I began my education career in Upstate New York and taught American History and Government, while also being active in high school athletics and student council.  I received my Bachelors Degree in Education from the State University of New York College at Cortland and my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from the New York State University at Albany.  I moved to Arizona in 2004 to be closer to family and live in Gilbert with my two children, Eli 10 and Ava 6.
