MR. IVAN CHAMBERS
Hello Liberty students and parents and welcome to (or back to) the Lancer Nation! This will be my 9th year at Liberty and my 19th year serving in Academy District 20, but my very first year as an administrator.
I am excited and honored to be serving as the Assistant Principal for the Class of 2021. In addition to teaching for 18 years, I also served as a varsity basketball coach for 16 years, including the last 7 seasons as the boys' varsity basketball coach here at Liberty. Before I began my educational career in D20 in 2001, I was an officer in the United States Air Force, making a tough decision to leave active duty after 12 years of service so my family could stay in Colorado Springs. I am a graduate of Southwest Baptist University (MO) and began my first stint in teaching in 1981 before entering the Air Force in 1985. My undergraduate degree is in Physical Education and Biology. I also have two master's degrees, one from the University of Northern Colorado (Sports Administration) and the other from Grand Canyon University (Secondary School Administration). Both of my kids graduated from LHS (1997 & 2000), and I now have a grandson that is a junior attending LHS this year. My passions are athletics and working with high school students while watching them grow and mature into young adults. It is an absolute pleasure and a privilege to be a part of the Lancer Nation and I am excited for what the new school year will bring.
MRS. ALISHA DONALD
Student Interventionist & Dean of Students (Class of 2020 & 2022)
I am excited to join and support the students, staff, and parents of Liberty High School as the Dean of Students and Academic Interventionist! I grew up in a small town outside of Rochester, NY and earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Earth Science from the State University of New York at Brockport. After college, I worked within the National Park Service, assisting in data collection for several different ecological studies. After a trip back home, and shadowing my middle school science teacher, I developed a strong desire to teach and decided to return to school to pursue a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I completed this degree at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. I have taught science at a secondary level for 17 years, and completed my Certificate of Educational Leadership, earning my administrative license, through Western State University in 2017. My husband and I have two children and we spend our time traveling, fishing, camping, and enjoy skiing in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. I am proud to now call myself a Lancer!

Welcome to Liberty High School! As a Liberty graduate myself (Go Lancers!), I am very excited for the opportunity to be back at Liberty!
I have been a teacher in the state of Colorado since 2010. I earned a degree in Child and Adolescent Development and received my teaching license from California State University-Fullerton. In December of 2018, I earned a Masters in Leadership as well as completed the Principal Licensure program at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. My husband and I have 2 beautiful girls and when I am not at school, you will find us spending time as a family enjoying hikes in the mountains, and trying out new restaurants around town. I am looking forward to a great year at Liberty!
