Ms. Kerri Newman



My name is Kerri Newman and am very excited to be teaching second grade to your child!!! This will be my 19th year teaching in KUSD. I have also taught kindergarten, third grade, and a 2nd/3rd multi-age classroom. I  have spent the majority of my years teaching career at the 2nd grade level.

I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in teaching and psychology from Barat College in Lake Forest, Illinois. I am currently working toward my Masters Degree in Special Education from Carthage College.

I have two wonderful teenagers at home. My daughter, Kelsi, will start her Freshman year at Gateway this Fall. My son, Kory, will be starting his Sophomore year at Tremper. We also have a crazy beagle/terrier mixed pooch at home named Karli! In my personal time, I enjoy snowmobiling and binge watching Netflix! I also love to read mysteries and articles about history and true crimes.

I am really looking forward to a fantastic school year!
