    Hello CHEETAHS & CHANDLER PARENTS! During this time of school closure, please know that you are welcome to reach out for support! You may reach me by email at Dawn.Horton@allenisd.org. I am available during regular school hours and am happy to set up a time to conference with your child.

    Each week, on the At-Home Learning Plans under Social Emotional Learning, please look for a brief lesson/discussion idea and some other tips for healthy & happy families. 

    Please tell your students hello from me - I miss all of the Chandler Cheetahs very much!

    Mrs. Horton's Background Info:

    Hello! I'm Dawn Horton, your Chandler School Counselor, and I'm so thankful to be a CHEETAH! I love working in Allen ISD as a School Counselor! Allen, Texas is such a special place - it's my hometown, and I'm a 1993 Allen High School graduate. GO EAGLES! After I received my bachelors degree in Education & Music from The University of Texas at Austin (HOOK 'EM HORNS!), I earned my Masters degree in Counseling from Texas A&M Commerce.


    Before I came to be the counselor at Chandler, I was a stay-at-home mom, the school counselor at Green Elementary, and the music teacher at Rountree before that! Allen ISD is the BEST place to be!


    I have two children - Hannah (8th grade Ford Mustang) and Will (2nd grade Cheetah)! My husband and I are on staff at our church where we lead contemporary worship and we enjoy traveling with our family as often as we can. We have a sweet lab mix rescue dog, named Carmen. My hobbies are singing, playing the piano, reading, traveling, and watching our kids dance, sing, and play baseball!


    Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you and your family!
