Hemet Unified School District is proud to announce the promotion of Tracy Chambers, former Director of Professional Development, as the new Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services.
Chambers has been with Hemet Unified School District for ten years. She has held a variety of positions both at the site level and within the district office. Her wide knowledge of the inner workings of the district will surely serve her well as she follows her passion to help create a district where students can succeed.
Chambers will oversee the entire educational services department, which includes Centralized Registration, Health Services, Student Support Services, Special Education, and Professional Development. Chambers said she is honored that she has been given the opportunity to make a positive impact on the district as a whole. She is excited to begin her new position and understands what an important role she plays for the students and staff members within the district.
As a student, Chambers was inspired by her fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Meyers. Chambers said Mrs. Meyers had an amazing ability to engage her students in curriculum that otherwise students would not have been interested in. Due to her interactions with Mrs. Meyers and her parents, who had both chosen to work in the field of education, Chambers decided to pursue a career where she would have the opportunity to help shape a future generation of students.
After completing high school in Palm Springs, Chambers enrolled in Point Loma Nazarene University to obtain her Bachelors of Arts degree in Liberal Studies. Her drive from Palm Springs to San Diego took her through Hemet where she would pass a small school, Winchester Elementary School, off a secluded street. Little did she know that years later she would be an Assistant Principal at that very school! Chambers was a split Assistant Principal at Winchester Elementary and Valle Vista Elementary, was promoted as Principal of Cawston Elementary, and then became the Director of Professional Development.
“I’m passionate about making a difference in this community and providing the best programs and resources to our students so they can succeed,” said Chambers. She said she is excited to work collectively with the Educational Services team, with the goal of student achievement at the forefront of every decision that is made. She said she is lucky to have team members that are just as passionate about the students in the district as she is.
Congratulations Tracy Chambers on your promotion to Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services! We are excited that you will bring your breadth of knowledge to provide various opportunities for our students to succeed.
