Mr. Mason M. Chandler


I’m Mason Chandler, a 9th grade English Instructor.
I was born in Houston, TX and spent my K-12 years in Fort Bend ISD. For college, I earned a BA in English at one of the oldest HBCUs in the state, Prairie View A&M University, but fell in love with words way before then. I entered the classroom as an English instructor, because I believe literacy is one of the most empowering tools for navigating our world as global citizens. Being a part of my students’ journey as readers, writers, and critical thinkers brings me profound purpose and delight.


I have been teaching for three years and have taught both here in Fort Bend ISD and internationally. This is my second year teaching at DHS, though I graduated from here many moons ago. #VikingTrue A fun fact about me is that I am passionate about mental health and am even studying to become a yoga teacher, as I have been practicing for seven years. (Get ready for lots of meditative breaks in class).


My favorite books of all time were written by American novelist Toni Morrison -- Sula and Song of Solomon. This summer, though, I entered the world of Lauren Olamina, a 15-year-old preacher’s kid who designs her own spiritual system to survive the apocalypse occurring in dystopian California. Parable of the Sower has completely captivated me, and I recommend it to anyone interested in dystopian novels, spirituality, and protagonists of color.
