Mrs. Newman's Class

Welcome to Third Grade!  My name is Jennifer Newman.  This year marks my 31st year of teaching. I attended Ball State University and graduated with a major in Elementary Education.  This will be my fourth year teaching at Tindley Accelerated Schools. Before coming to Tindley, I previously taught First and Second grades at Indianapolis Public Schools, Stephen Foster Elementary #67.  I am so excited to be in Third Grade!


I am married and have two daughters, Taylor and Brooke. Taylor graduated from University of Kentucky with a major in social work and psychology. She recently obtained her Masters degree from Ball State University in May and is an ABA therapist. Brooke recently graduated from Ball State University where she majored in marketing.   I also have a pretty amazing dog named Rossi. He is a 10 year old Golden Retriever.


In my free-time, I lLOVE to read.  I often have two or three books on my nightstand. During Covid, I set a goal to read all of the books in the Harry Potter series.  I am currently on book 4.  (Shout-out to Rashad for books 4-7!)  I also enjoy reading books by Nelson DeMille.  I am close with my parents who live 45 minutes away.  I try to spend as much time with them as I can.  Another fun fact is my family recently became big fans of the board game, Sequence. If you haven't played it, I recommend trying it out!  


I am a firm believer that families are the most important component in a child's education. I have been fortunate to be a part of over 1,000 scholar/family partnerships and I am looking forward to working with you this year. With hard work and open communication through Class Dojo, we will provide your scholar the best support there is!


I am looking forward to an exciting school year! ☺





Who is excited to start school? I am! Can't wait to meet all of our new 3rd graders!
