Hi! I'm LeAnn Newsome, a first grade teacher at Northside Elementary School. I have been teaching at Northside for 21 years. Seventeen of those years have been in first grade.
I have been a resident of Cedartown my whole life. My husband's name is Jamie. He is Chief at Cedartown Police Department. We have two children. My son, Casey, is eighteen and he is in 12th grade and my daughter, Joanna, is fifteen and is a 10th grader. Both attend Cedartown High School.
I graduated from CHS in 1992 and earned my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education from Shorter College and began working at Northside in the fall of 1995. I immediately started working on my master's degree at the University of West Georgia. Later, I attended Jacksonville State University to earn my Specialist Degree in Elementary Education.
I am looking forward to a great year at Northside. It excites me to have the opportunity to get to know a different group of students and I am enthusiastic about beginning a new year!
