Black History Month Guest Speaker: Dr. Chawanna Bethany Chambers ‘07

In Celebration of Black History Month:

Dr. Chawanna Bethany Chambers '07

President of Single Seed Enrichment School

Dr. Chawanna Bethany Chambers is a national award-winning and board certified pre-K-20 career educator with teaching experience spanning primary, secondary and higher education. Currently, she is a curriculum developer and summer assistant director of curriculum for a New England nonprofit organization and teaches undergraduate and graduate education courses online.

In 2016, she founded Single Seed Enrichment School, Inc., which is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the educational experiences of Pre-K-12 children in San Antonio, Texas. Single Seed is one part of the legacy she wants to leave in the world—one that actualizes the lived experiences of each child who chooses to learn. She earned her B.A. in multidisciplinary studies from TLU, where she graduated magna cum laude. She also obtained an M.Ed. in educational administration from Grand Canyon University and a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction from Capella University. Chambers is currently enrolled in George Mason University’s Graduate Certificate program for blended and online learning in K-12 Schools.

She has taught K-12 English online, coordinated Title I after-school tutoring programs, served as a reading intervention teacher, helped plan and facilitate advisory programs, developed curriculum, supported teachers as an instructional coach, and served in several other leadership capacities. In addition to being named New Teacher of the Year in 2009, the National Council for Teachers of English awarded her with one of its Early Career Educator awards, and she received the Principal’s Award on her campus in 2010.

Watch Founder's Story, the story behind Dr. Chambers and her vision for opening a public charter school in her hometown of San Antonio. 

This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Center for African-American Studies, the Department of History, and the Department of Theology, Philosophy, and Classical Languages.
