Welcome to the Chandler Education Association website! I’ve been a K-8 educator for 23 years, 16 of them at Chandler Unified School District elementary schools. For the 2023-2024 school year I will be a district substitute teacher and your president. Through our shared values of collective bargaining, dignity within the profession, fair working conditions, and respect we will powerfully strengthen our education community. If you’re not already a member of the union, please reach out. Exercise the freedom you have to join.

Diane Lundahl

Vice President of
Association Representatives

I have been teaching at Hamilton High School, in the World Language Department, since it opened in 1998. Teaching AP Spanish Language and Culture as well as AP Spanish Literature and Culture are my absolute joy. All three of my children graduated from Hamilton and I currently have a nephew attending as my newest Husky. Throughout the years I have taken much pride in being able to advocate for my students and my education peers at the site, district, and state level. I am a proud Executive Board Member of CEA and believe in using our voices to create the district and state we want to teach in.

Carly Mahlmeister

Vice President of

I am excited to be a part of the executive board as the VP of Committees. I am a behavior interventionist at Bologna Elementary. I am proud to have my two boys attend public school in Chandler. CEA has played a huge part in my growth as a professional. Micro-credentials, books studies, and training series are a few ways CEA supports educators. We ARE stronger learning together!

I am currently teaching middle school and high school French at Basha High School. I teach because I believe that everyone deserves equal access to education. I am a CEA member because I believe that our voice as educators has worth and that positive change can happen when we speak up and act together. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to contribute, as your CEA treasurer.
