Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Spurger

This is my fourth year at Wills Point Middle school and my second year teaching 5th grade reading.  I have been married for 27 years and we have two boys.  Our youngest is a student at the junior high and our oldest graduated in 2014.  I have my bachelors degree in Special Education and am working on my masters in Curriculum and Instruction.   I coach Special Olympics swimming and used to coach my youngest basketball team.  I enjoy swimming, reading, crocheting, going to the movies and playing Minecraft. 

Reading is my passion.  My oldest son has down syndrome and has struggled with reading.  I was told I needed to give up and come to terms with the fact that he would never read.  I refused to do that and I'm happy to say that his reading is measurable now.  He loves books and reading.  I believe all children have so much to give and offer the world and strive to help them know how incredible they are.  I want to make reading fun and love to help my students find books they can fall in love with.
