Dean of Students
Alicia Chambers joined Maine Connections Academy in the fall of 2015. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English literature and secondary education and a master’s degree in education. Prior to assuming the role of dean of students, Ms. Chambers taught secondary English in the state of Maine for nearly a decade, most recently at MCA. During that time, she has held a variety of student advisory and teacher leadership roles.
Ms. Chambers has experience working with diverse students at all levels. She firmly believes that “every student has the ability to achieve academic success with appropriate support and programming.” She says, “MCA empowers students to have voice and choice in their educational path, while providing personalized instructional support.” Preparing students for postsecondary success and active citizenship is one of her core principles of education. “It is critical that all students have a clear postsecondary plan that connects goals and aspirations with actions and resources.” As dean of students, Ms. Chambers is dedicated to working closely with students, parents, and teachers to achieve this goal.
Outside of school, Ms. Chambers enjoys spending time outdoors with her family, traveling to new destinations, and quietly reading.
