Hello, I am your new ESL teacher here at Morrison this year. I have taught 23 years and I truly love my job! I am turning a corner in my career and teaching ESL this year. I received my ESL endorsement from MTSU in 2005, but I couldn't give up the classroom until now. Giving up the classroom was hard, but I am very excited to be a part of the Morrison family! I know Morrison is a great school and I can't wait to work with everyone!
I lost my loving wonderful husband(Rusty Newby) in 2011 due to a sudden heart attack. Although it has been very hard without him, I have three fabulous children to keep me busy. They are 20, 18 and 10 years old. I have a pet poodle, Zoey also. I enjoy my family, church activities, reading about school ideas, Pintrest, movies,friends and Netfix!
One thing I love about teaching is when my former students come back to say, "I remember when.....", or just say hello. I believe every child has a story and I hope I can be a part in their educational journey.
