Mr. Chad Van Heusen

I’m originally from Sacramento, graduated from Sacramento State University with a BA in Public Relations, and completed my teaching credential from Sacramento State as well. This summer, I earned my MA in Administration. I am currently in my fifth year teaching at Scandia Elementary, and am thankful to teach in a district that provides a quality education for all students. In addition to my teaching experience, I have worked with underprivileged youth, various afterschool programs, and camps for 19 years. I truly have a passion for teaching that allows me to wake up each morning ready to conquer the day. I give each student my best and expect each student return the favor by giving me their best each day. Teaching is a profession that is humbling and I live for the moments when a child grasps a difficult concept and their “light bulb” turns on. I am certain each student will create long-lasting memories of our classroom activities, projects, field trips, as well as friendships. I am excited for the new school year and the opportunities ahead. I hope you are as well!
