Mrs. Jesyka Alvarez-Colon
My name is Mrs. Alvarez and I am very excited to join the Colt family. I began my career back in 1994, as an English teacher at a Christian private school, where I taught 2nd, 5th, 10th, and 11th grade for two years. I graduated with honors from the University of Puerto Rico in 1996, where I earned my B.A. in Secondary English. I worked in the Public School System of Puerto Rico for four years and then decided to move to Florida in 2000. I worked in Orange County Public Schools for six years and then Osceola County Public Schools for the last eleven years.
A little bit about me: I am the mother of three amazing children. My son Kevin is 20 years-old and is going on his third year at UF, my daughter Melanie is 17 years-old and just graduated from high school, and my little one Noah is almost 4 years-old. I am passionate about reading, I love spending time with my family, and I enjoy outdoor activities.
