Hi! My name is Mrs. Newton and I will be your fourth grade teacher this year. This is my eighth year teaching 4th grade in Montgomery. I have also taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade in other districts. I love teaching fourth grade the most! Do you like learning new things, asking lots of questions, and working together to discover new possibilities???? Then you will LOVE the 4th grade! This year is all about asking questions, being curious, and making new connections with what you already know.
Hopefully you will get a chance to come to Open House night on Wednesday, August 22 between 4 & 7 p.m. If you can't make it to open house, please email me and we can find another time for you to come in and drop off your supplies and meet before the first day of school.
Here are a few more things about me...my hometown is Willmar, MN and I went to college at Concordia in Moorhead where I got my degree in Elementary Education. I also recently finished my Master's Degree from Saint Mary's University. It was a lot of hard work, but I learned so much and made many good friends. I live in New Prague with my husband Paul and two boys named Henry and Sam.
