Hello First Grade Students and Familes!
My name is Katie Newberry. I am so excited to join the Cherry Drive family this year! I have been teaching for 8 years. I was born and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona. I am a graduate of The University of Arizona, where I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education. I have taught Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. I have had the privilege of teaching diverse student populations, serving on district curriculum writing teams and school wide literacy committees. I am in the process of my master's degree in Educational Equity and Multicultural Education at The University of Colorado. Teaching is my passion. I simply love what I do! I believe in creating and maintaining a positive and engaging learning experience for all of my students. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
On a personal note, my family and I moved here from Phoenix, Az in 2016. We love it here! My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We have a daughter (12), and a son (9). I enjoy spending my time with my family and friends, reading, camping, gardening, skiing, and home remodeling projects.
