Differentiation & Placement Specialist
Hello, my name is Christina Dixon and I am the Differentiation & Placement Specialist here at Valley Career & Technical Center. As the Differentiation & Placement Specialist, I work in collaboration with all of the surrounding schools to help ensure that students interested in coming to VCTC are accurately placed into a class of interest that is also appropriate with their needs and abilities. Once a student has been accepted, if they have an IEP or 504 Plan, I assist both staff and students with accommodations and individual student needs to help ensure a successful learning experience!
I have worked in various roles in education for the last 14 years. Before coming to work at VCTC, I was the Special Education Administrator for Harker Heights HS in Texas. I have worked as a Section 504 Coordinator, Testing Coordinator, Special Education Teacher, and Middle School Science Teacher. These varied roles have given me a vast view point of education and the varied needs of our students.
I am an avid support and believer in Career and Technical Education (CTE) for our children. Valley Career & Technical Center is an asset to our community, as it enables our students to obtain State and National Certifications (at not cost to the student) within their industry, allowing them to access higher paying skilled jobs or even prepare for their future career after college.
If you are wondering how CTE courses can help you get ahead in life, please do not hesitate to speak with your counselor or contact our campus for further information!
