My name is Mandy Chapman and I have had the privilege to teach with Elk Island Public School district since 2012. I am one of the Grade 6 teachers here at Lakeland Ridge, but have also taught Grades 1, 3, and 5 within our district. This is my first year at Lakeland Ridge and I am thrilled to meet its students and families.
My husband, Brent Chapman, and I have a golden retriever, named Oakley, who is the center of our universe (and she knows it!). We love to travel to tropical destinations to enjoy the sunshine and sand in our toes. During my spare time, I enjoy dancing (I have also taught at a dance studio for over ten years), kickboxing, golfing, and walks with Oakley. I love to unwind by reading books and spending time with my family and friends.
Working with children has been a lifelong passion of mine. Seeing their smiles each day and the growth they achieve are very fulfilling and bring much joy to my life. I feel very passionately that working together with my student’s parents as a team foster the greatest conditions for success. Communication is key!! Please make sure to visit my Teacher page and check your emails often for updates on what is going on in our classroom and around the school. I am always happy to hear from my student’s families so please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions.
