I am THE one and only Takyra M. Chambers. I am a native of Fort Worth, Texas--born and raised. I am 2002 graduate of Jarvis Christian College, a premier HBCU in the piney woods of East Texas. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, minoring in Speech Communications. In addition to being educated, I joined the best sorority ever founded, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Shortly after graduating from Jarvis Christian College, I earned a Masters of Education in Student Affairs and Higher Education in 2008 from Texas A&M University--Commerce.
This is my 17th year in education. I am new to Duncanville ISD, and I am the proud 7th grade counselor at Reed Middle School. I have taught 6th-8th ELAR, 8th Pre-AP English, and 8th Speech. In this role, I seek to build positive relationships with students as I aid in their social/emotional growth and academic progress!
In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my son. Being relatively new to motherhood (3 years in) keeps me on my toes and has been the most fulfilling role I have ever boldly stepped into! I thank the Creator daily for my son. In addition to quality family time, I enjoy writing/reading various texts, watching television (i.e. documentaries, DALLAS COWBOYS football, HGTV, and 90s comedy shows), creating collages/scrap booking, coloring, and hanging and laughing with family and my circle of friends.
