Mr. Donald Lant

Mr. Lant is in his second year at Cesar Chavez high school teaching in the ESL department.  After nearly 30 years in the retail petroleum construction industry, a motorcycle accident forced an end to his career.  After a 5 year recovery from the accident, Mr. Lant entered college at 53 years old to develop a new version of himself.  As a first-generation college student, Mr. Lant graduated from Paradise Valley Community College with honors and an Associates of Arts degree.  Mr. Lant then transferred to Arizona State University to complete a bachelor's degree in Philosophy, Religion, and Society and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2018.  Mr. Lant is currently enrolled in graduate school at Arizona State University and working on my master's degree in secondary education.  Mr. Lant went into teaching to contribute to his community, help to establish equity and opportunity in education to all students and to help develop the next generation of leaders.  He resides in Phoenix with his wife Maryanne, 3 rescued dogs Wyatt, Allee, and Sophee and 2 rescued cats Rocky and Skooter.
