Ms. Jesyka Alvarez-Colon
I am very excited to be part of the amazing DMS Tiger family. I began my teaching career in 1994, working at a Christian private school teaching 2nd, 5th, 10th, and 11th grade language arts, while finishing college at the University of Puerto Rico. After earning my B.A. in Secondary English Education, I began working for the Public School System of Puerto Rico and served for four years. I moved to Central Florida in 2000 and taught in Orange County for six years, and in Osceola County for eleven years. Since 2017, I call Marion County home and I couldn’t be happier.
I have been blessed with three amazing children, love spending time with my family, I'm passionate about reading, and I enjoy outdoor activities.
