Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Peter Chapman. I’m a newbie here at Lincoln Academy. This year marks 19 years that I’ve been teaching. In that time, I’ve taught traditional middle and high schools as well as community college. This is my first experience at a charter—so far I only hope everyone at LA is as impressed with me as I am with them! Everyone is wonderful to work with!
I have been married 24 years this year and we have a 20 year old daughter, a Junior at Montana Western University (Go Bulldogs!). In our free time we love the outdoors—walking, biking, camping, or just hanging out on the patio.
I have one philosophy on education: A student gets out of it what they put into it. My job is to provide the richest environment for their success as I can. The parents’ job is to provide support at home. In the end, it is the student who decides how much they take from their education. It is for this reason that I have very high expectations for my students.
I look forward to several fruitful years here at Lincoln Academy. Thank you for this opportunity!
