Chance Sims

Chance holds a bachelor’s degree from Willamette University, and two master’s degrees, one from DePaul University and another from the University of Washington. Chance is originally from the Pacific Northwest, but most recently he was the upper school assistant principal and director of global travel at the Trinity School in New York City. He built the Trinity School’s travel program from the ground up, and helped create partnerships with five schools while overseeing student trips to locations all over the globe. In his cover letter, Chance shared: “I’m attracted to The Northwest School because it stands as a model for how independent schools can play a part in the rethinking of schooling in the United States and abroad. The contemporary moment requires that schools promote the development of new social imaginations with which we might create a different, more just, equitable, and sustainable world.”

In 2017, Chance was selected to participate in the Carney Sandoe Diversity Forum in Philadelphia, whose theme this year was “Where Do We Go Now? Navigating Privilege, Equity, and Voice.” Chance was among a small handful of “outstanding leaders from around the country” who were invited “to facilitate panels and serve as honorary professional development faculty.”
