Dear East High Community,

Hello! My name is Connor Chapman and I am the Earth Systems teacher here at East High. I am excited to begin my third year teaching at CD East!

My career in education is rooted in an early fascination with meteorology. Growing up in Upstate New York, I experienced all types of weather - thunderstorms, extreme cold, winter storms - which drove me to pursue a B.S. in meteorology. While a college student, I gave forecasts for the campus TV station and got to release a weather balloon! However, it was during my senior year - when I completed a research project and tutored underclassmen - that I was inspired to pursue further education.

As a Master's student at Penn State, I taught lab courses in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and climatology outside of my research duties. Although I enjoyed my research, I quickly fell in love with teaching. After earning an M.S. in geography, I took a year off from graduate school to become a high school teacher. Three years later, I am happy to be teaching at East High!

Outside of school, I love running, playing guitar, and singing with my barbershop quartet. I live with my wife and daughter in Lancaster County.

I look forward to getting to know you this year!
