Gail Chandler

  • I was born in the Chicago suburbs and lived most of my younger life growing up there.  I attended MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois, a small Division III college where I majored in Biology and played collegiate volleyball, basketball, softball, and tennis.  I received my teaching degree at MacMurray as well and began my teaching career in Idaho Falls, Idaho.  I taught 7th grade Life Science for eleven years as well as coached basketball and softball.  While teaching in Idaho Falls, I attended Idaho State University in Pocatello, where I received my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.  I moved to Missoula, Montana in 2002 to join the MCPS staff.   I am a Mindful Schools Certified Mindfulness Instructor.  I have been an educator for 30 years and love teaching.   I am currently teaching Elective courses in Mindfulness and writing and am the HiSET Options Program teacher.
