His long tenure with Saint Andrew’s started in 2003. In addition to his current role, Chambers has taught history and served as the school’s vice principal and athletic director. He received a bachelor’s in history and journalism from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and a master’s in teaching and a Professional Administrator License from the University of Portland.

A proud alumnus of Bellarmine Preparatory School in Tacoma, Chambers currently serves on the Portland SEEL (Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life) advisory board and is a former volunteer with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. He will be based in Portland at the Jesuits West Province office.
