Newsome, Karen

Hello My Name Is...

Karen Newsome

Ms. Newsome

I graduated with a BS in Education from Georgia Southern University, an MS in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama, and an EdS in Educational Psychology from Walden University. I live in Georgia now, but I grew up in "The Big Easy" - New Orleans, Louisiana - a very diverse and exciting city. Both of my parents, my grandmother, aunt, two uncles, and now my two sisters, as well, were/are all in the education field, so I guess you can say it's the "family business." I have a husband, Bill, three daughters - Brandie, Brianna, and Bethany, three dogs, and two cats. I also have a grandson, Jack, and a granddaughter, Chloe. My family is the most important thing to me, but my students and co-workers come in a very close second. :)



I have been in the field of education for over 15 years and have taught and/or worked at schools ranging from Pre-K to 12th grades.


I very much enjoy teaching and working with students of all ages and truly believe that all children deserve a great education and a chance to achieve their dreams.
