Meet Olivia Chandler, one of the coaches at School of the Future! Ms. OIivia was born and raised in Philly and attended Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania where she got a Bachelor’s in Political Science. She graduated earlier this year with her Master’s in Educational Leadership – College Student Affairs from Bloomsburg, too, and was very active in different honors societies throughout undergraduate and graduate school. When asked what influenced her transition from political science to education, she said it was when “the president of Bloomsburg University [of Pennsylvania] asked… if I ever considered receiving my master’s in education…” Though it was not on her mind at the time, she went for it and “fell in love with education and assisting students in their personal, professional, and academic growth.”
Upon finding her true love in working with students and in education, Ms. Olivia was motivated to apply to Promise Corps and to continue to serve as a role model and mentor for students. With Promise Corps, she gets to utilize her learned experiences to guide and support students to the best of her ability and continue to pursue her passion. This passion for students is supported tenfold when it comes to being part of the School of the Future (SOF) family. Ms. Olivia admired the school spirit found in every staff member, student, and educator at SOF, and wanted to be part of the supportive environment. So far, she has been part of seminar classes and met with some students on her caseload, and has enjoyed every part of the experience. In her own words, Ms. Olivia is most looking forward to “witnessing students discover their passions and dreams while becoming their best self!”
Besides working with students, Ms. Olivia is a gym junkie! Outside of class time you can find her working out or planning a workout- she is a true fitness fanatic. She also loves watching 90 Day Fiance, snacking on Chomp’s grass fed jerky, and spending time with loved ones. Here is to an amazing school year with School of the Future coach Ms. Olivia!
