Ms. Barbara Newsom

I began teaching elementary school in 2007, and started at Mountainside in 2018.  I have taught grades kindergarten through 3rd grade – but 2nd grade is my most favorite grade to teach.  I hold a Masters degree in Reading, a Bachelor’s in Business Management with a minor in Psychology, and one in Elementary Education.  I am the very proud mom of a daughter, Kelsey, who is on the adventure of her life – continuing her education in the medical field.  I enjoy walking, scrapbooking, cooking, and of course MICKEY MOUSE!!
