Mrs. Chandra Mixon
Hello! My name is Chandra Mixon. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a BS in Education with a specialization in Reading. This is my 19th year in education, and I can't imagine doing anything else. I became a traveling dyslexia specialist 4 years ago, and I am honored to be on campus here at Valley Ranch Elementary! My favorite part of teaching is instilling a love of learning in my students and seeing that "magical lightbulb" come on when they have an "Ah-Ha" moment!! My favorite part of being a dyslexia teacher is retraining the brain to teach students how to read and manipulate letter and sounds!! It is such a joy to see a student learn to read! There is no greater feeling than when they pick up that first book and find success!
I have been married for 22 years and have two beautiful girls. My oldest is a senior and will be going off to college next year, and my youngest started middle school this year! I am active in my church choir and teach a middle school girls Life Group class on Sundays. I also love to travel and read in my spare time.
