About Me

My name is Kerry Chandler. I grew up in Conroe, Texas and graduated from Conroe High in 2001. I attended Texas A&M University in College Station, where I received a Bachelor's degree in History with an English minor, then went on to get my Master's degree in History at Texas State University in San Marcos. I've been teaching since 2007, teaching 7th, 8th, 9th, and 11th grade social studies classes. I currently teach 11th grade AP U.S. History and Dual Credit U.S. History at Conroe High School, my alma mater. I'm also an adjunct professor at Lonestar College, where I teach freshman level history classes. I also work as a professional development consultant, specializing in integrating Google Apps for Education into the secondary classroom. My wife, Michelle, is also a Conroe native an works in the field of education. We have a four year-old son, Nathaniel.

Technology Background

I've been a big nerd my whole life, but I became a pretty serious computer nerd around the 9th grade. Throughout high school and college, I held various tech jobs such as web-designer, lab administrator, and computer component repair tech. As a teacher, I've taught numerous professional developments, mostly on using technology in the classroom. In 2014, I started my own professional development business, Chandler Tech Teaching, in which I go around to school districts and conferences, sharing my knowledge in utilizing technology in the classroom, mostly in the area of Google Apps for Education. Early in 2015, I was invited to work with a team of teachers and administrators at Google's regional headquarters in Austin, developing lessons using Google Apps for Education. In my personal time, I build and repair computers, play video games, and am learning to code.
