Hi! I'm LeAnn Newsome, a first grade teacher at Northside Elementary School. I have been teaching at Northside for 22 years. Eighteen 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 nineteen and is a freshman at the University of Georgia. My daughter, Joanna, is seventeen and is an 11th grader at 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!
