Chance grew up in Northern Maine where he attended university; so, it is no surprise that he is an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys “getting away from it all”—he’s visited 48 states and appreciates the special beauty of each. As an educator, Chance is devoted to the successful achievement of all students in equitable and inclusive STEAM programs and has been recognized nationally with the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. In the spring of 2020, he was named a Master Teacher of Honor by Kappa Delta Pi. A passionate lifelong student, Chance is currently furthering his understanding of mental health, cooking techniques, and Spanish. In his free time, Chance watches cartoons.
