Ms. Kwayzer's Bio
Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 8th Grade Redbirds. My name is Chandra Kwayzer and I have been a part of the Hannah Beardsley family since 2001 teaching language arts and social studies. I graduated from Northern Illinois University in Dekalb with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education K-9. In 2003, I received a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Xavier University in Chicago, and finally, in 2007, I received a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia University in Chicago.
As part of the HBMS team, I am currently one of the student council coordinators, one of three directors the spring musicals, and had the pleasure of coaching cheerleading for seven seasons. I hope to see many students getting involved in the many activities HBMS has to offer its students.
I have enjoyed working with middle school students the past 19 years to reach for their dreams through education. I believe every student should be valued and treated with RESPECT and KINDNESS. I believe education should EMPOWER students to make a positive contribution to our world. My passion for teaching comes from all my years of phenomenal teachers that shaped and molded me over the years. They were my role models and I hope I can make as big of an impact in your child’s life that my teachers had on my life. I look forward to getting to know all parents and students this year.
