About Chad Ostrom

I am extremely excited to begin my 18th year in the Fowler Elementary School District. In 2003, I moved to Phoenix from Minnesota after graduating from St. Cloud State University with a BS in education. I taught both middle and elementary school for several years in the Fowler District. In 2006, I continued my education by earning a master’s degree in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University. Soon thereafter, I became an administrator in the Fowler District. Throughout my 18 years with FESD, I have had many wonderful experiences as both a teacher and an administrator. Beginning the 2020-2021 school year, I will be the proud principal of our new Fowler Elementary School District Virtual Academy!

Why I Teach

I teach because I had several teachers as a child who inspired me to be the best. I have family members who are or were teachers as well. Growing up, I enjoyed listening to their stories about their classrooms, and I wanted to be a part of that. I love working with students and watching the moment they finally understand something or see their face light up when their hard work and determination pays off. I enjoy working hand in hand with parents to help their child grow not only academically but socially.
