Mrs. Jessica Newman

     Welcome to Third Grade!  My name is Jessica Newman.  I am a native of Kershaw County and a graduate of Camden High School, class of 1999.  I earned my B.A. Degree in Elementary Education from USC Upstate in 2007.  From August 2007-June 2011, I taught fourth grade in Sumter School District at Crosswell Drive Elementary Arts Integrated Magnet School.  I moved my career to Richland School District 2 in 2011 and taught fourth grade at L.W. Conder Elementary Arts Integrated Magnet School for three years.  After starting our family, I finally made it back home to Kershaw County School District, where I teach third grade at Lugoff Elementary School, Home of the Counts!   

When I am not teaching, I enjoy doing arts and crafts, spending time with my family, and going on adventures with my youth group.  I also enjoy listening to music, singing and dancing (I'm sure your children will tell you I am NOT the next American Idol), and looking for new ways to do things. 

I have a passion for teaching, loving children, and shaping their minds to learn how to think, not what to think.  I am very excited about the coming year and look forward to reaching for the stars of success!
