Hello, I am Allyson Spurgeon and I am the Principal at the greatest elementary school in Texas!
I was born and raised in Burkburnett, TX. My family moved to San Antonio at the beginning of my high school years. I began my teaching career in 1996 with Palmer Elementary. I have taught 1st and 2nd grades, Reading Recovery, grades 4-8 Developmental Math and Developmental Reading. I have been the Assistant Principal at Palmer Middle School and am currently the Principal at Palmer Elementary. Although I am not a native of Palmer, it is truly a wonderful place to live. Palmer Elementary has the best kids and staff that anyone could ask for. It is a blessing to be able to make my passion a career. There is nothing better than having hundreds of children to love everyday. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your children's lives. It's always a GREAT day at Palmer Elementary!
