Ms. Allison (Allie) Horton
Hello and welcome to SPARK Academy,
I am the special education teacher, and I am looking forward to working with you this school year! I will be working closely with you and your child to ensure that their indiviual needs and goals are being met while having fun and learning new information about the world around them.
This is my fifth year in education. I have taught 5th grade, and also taught 1st/2nd grade refugees and new immigrants from all over the world. I have also previously worked with an independent school as an evening coordinator for Preschool students. This school utililzed a student-centered, inquiry-based approach to education. This will be my second year at SPARK Academy and Athens City School District.
I have my masters in special education with a focus on STEM Education for Students with Disabilities. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education (inclusive education), and an undergraduate degree in creative writing.
I love all things Harry Potter, the Adirondack Mountains, and coffee! I also enjoy watching hockey and football!
