Welcome to My AIG Language Arts Classroom

My name is Mrs. Sara Newell and I will be your 7th/8th grade Language Arts teacher this school year.  I am originally from Rochester, New York.  

I am married to Mr. Newell (he teaches 7th grade Science at Kannapolis Middle School) and I have two lovable cats, Socks and Homer.  I also play piano, and played clarinet and flute when I was in school.  I have lived in North Carolina for 8 years and over these years, I have taught 3rd grade for 2 years, 6th grade for 2 years and 7th grade for 6 years.  Two years ago, I was chosen as the Kannapolis Middle School Teacher of the Year.  I also earned my National Boards in teaching in 2009.  Outside of the classroom, I coach Middle School Cross-Country and Middle School Track and Field.  I spend my "free time" fulfilling the three R's: running, reading, and relaxing.  I truly enjoy teaching and helping your child learn in new, exciting, and fun ways this school year.  Please do not hesitate to contact me anytime that you need to. 

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I attended Saint Bonaventure University where I received my BS in Elementary Education with a concentration in Social Sciences and Technology and a minor in Psychology.  I also attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I received my add-on teaching certificate for Middle Grades Language Arts grades 6-9.  Last year I completed graduate school at Gardner-Webb to earn my master's in Middle School Education.  I am continuing my education this year in AIG at UNC Charlotte.

Educational Philosophy/Vision:
As you can see, I enjoy continuing my education.  My goal is to take what I am learning in school to better your child's education at all times.
