Dr. Gerald Chandler

Principal, Silsbee Elementary

Dr. Gerald Chandler has experienced 27 years in Education and has served in many capacities throughout his career. From starting as an agriculture teacher and progressing throughout all levels of school administration.  The most rewarding experience is having the opportunity to work with students and teachers. Dr. Chandler received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture Production from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1994, a Master of Education in School Administration from Lamar University in 2007, and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY in 2018.

Goal: "One thing that motivates me about being a school administrator is to never forget I was a teacher.  With all the requirements placed upon school districts and individual campuses, it is easy to filter everything down to the teacher level.  These requirements take a lot of time away from our teachers and it is important to remember their primary duty is to teach our students, not to continuously utilize their time for extra requirements."
