Lynden Chapman, History Teacher

Mr. Chapman is a tornado of energy.  It’s rare to find a history teacher that can engage and interact with students more than Mr. Chapman.  His classroom is a museum, filled with ancient relics such as old typewriters, cans of Nuteena veggie meat and vintage model cars. Mr. Chapman has taught in boarding schools for over 30 years and can’t think of a higher calling than Adventist education.

Mr. Chapman enjoys traveling and being with his lovely wife, Linda, of 39 years.

“Working with teenagers keeps me young and humble,” he says.
