Welcome to Third Grade! I am Mrs. Newman and I teach ELA and Social Studies. This is my fourth year teaching in 3rd Grade. I am excited to read with you, learn more about you, and have lots of fun! We will be reading novels, writing paragraphs, learning about maps/globes, and our country. I love teaching at Steekee Elementary, it's the best school ever! I live in Vonore, Tennessee with my daughter, who is heading off to college, and my husband. I graduated with my Bachelor's in education from Tennessee Technology University and a Master's in Reading Specialist from Carson Newman University. This is my 17th year of teaching here at Steekee. What an exciting year we have ahead of us! I can't wait to get started!!
