Mrs. Melissa Newton

Welcome to 4th Grade!! I am excited about working with the children of Smiths Station this year! This is my 8th year of teaching. I have only taught 4th grade. I teach math and science and my partner teacher is Mrs. Duke who teaches Reading, Language Arts, and AL History. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Troy University in 2015. I received my Master's of Education in Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama in 2020. We have two daughters named Savannah and Lucy. I also have two miniature schnauzers named Drake and Phoebe. My goal for this year is to teach in a way that my students can apply what they learn to everyday life. I want my students to be prepared for the challenges they will face in their academic years and career, as well as realize that they can make a difference in the world around them today, and in the future. Please reach out to me if you have any questions!!
