Ms. Jesyka Alvarez-Colon
I am very excited to be part of the amazing DMS Tiger family. I moved to Dunnellon last year and absolutely love this town. I began my teaching career back in 1994, teaching at a Christian private school. I worked there for two years teaching 2nd, 5th, 10th, and 11th grade language arts, while finishing college at the University of Puerto Rico, where I earned my B.A. in Secondary English Education. After graduating, I worked for the Public School System of Puerto Rico for four years, then moved to Central Florida in 2000. I worked for Orange County Public Schools for six years, and Osceola County Public Schools for eleven years. I now 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.
