Welcome Kinder Families! My name is Alyson Sparkman and I have been a Kindergarten teacher at Dixon for the past 3 years. I graduated from FAU in 2011 with a BA in Elementary Education K-6 with English as a Second Language. I have been a Kindergarten teacher for 9 years. I love being able to spend each year sharing the first school experiences with the kiddos and watching them build a love for learning. We have lots to learn in just one year of Kindergarten and know how challenging it can be for a new learner. My expectations go beyond the classroom. I try my best to teach them to persevere and always try their best. We encourage others to succeed and build strong relationships with our peers by problem solving and working together. Sometimes it is not always about being right, but understanding that spreading kindess and being accepting of others opinions is the right thing to do!
A little bit about me.... I am originally from sunny South Florida where I was born and raised. My husband and I moved here about 10 years ago after we got married. We welcomed our first son, Liam in 2018, and are expecting another son this December. We are so excited for him to be a big brother! We have several little animals including turtles, fish, and chickens, but our first "fur baby", Hank is a pitbull mix and he is our gentle giant. He is the best dog anyone could have!
When I am not teaching I love to spend time with family and friends. You can find us outside swimming, going to the beach, playing in the yard, taking the boat out for a stroll, and doing arts and crafts. We are slightly addicted to DIY projects and building new things.
