My name is Nyla Newton, and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. It's going to be an awesome year! This year my goals are for your child to grow not only academically, but socially and emotionally too.
I have 23 years of teaching experience and this is my second year teaching 5th grade here at Raven Stream. I have previously taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I graduated from Willmar High School, earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Concordia College in Moorhead and then completed my master's degree in Curriculum Design and Instruction from St. Mary's University.
I live with my husband, Paul and have two boys that are both attending the University of Minnesota Duluth. We have a dog named Aggie that loves to go on lots of walks, too! When I'm not out walking my dog around town, I enjoy relaxing at our cabin up north, having camp fires in our back yard, and baking new recipes. Over the summer we moved houses in New Prague, so that took a lot of work!
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you better this school year. I believe communication will be a crucial part to a successful year. Please feel free to contact me about any concerns. Let's make it a great year!
