Mrs. Newton grew up in Central New York, where she attended college receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Master Degree in Reading. There she met her husband, Andy. They have two wonderful children, Matt and Lauren. Mrs. Newton loves outdoor adventure. Hiking in the National Parks and boating are her favorite summertime activities. The winter wonderland on the ski slopes with her family is one of the beauties of living in Utah.

I am so happy to be a part of Ascent Academy right here in Farmington! My husband and I have lived in Farmington for over twenty years and have raised our three children here. I have taught for a total of 18 years in the Jordan School District, Davis District and in Charter Schools. I love teaching and learning. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education at Brigham Young University and my Master of Education/Special Education- Gifted and Talented at the University of Utah. I love spending time with my family, playing tennis, reading and traveling with my husband.
I attended Southern Utah University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Secondary English Education. I continued my education at Utah State University where I earned by School Library Media Endorsement. Over ten years in education has allowed me to work with students from kindergarten to high school, and now I get to work with students and staff as their librarian.
I grew up in rural Utah, married my high school sweetheart, and we have one son. I really enjoy reading and collecting books. I also like cookies, organizing, and LEGO.
I enjoy what I do and hope to spark the love of reading and learning in our students.
