Mrs. Jennifer Newton
Welcome to the A.T.Allen Music page. My name is Jennifer Newton and I have been working with elementary-age children in some capacity since my college days (A LONG TIME AGO)! I love watching their brains figure out new things and I especially love the happiness and joy they get from music. The possiilties with music are endless.
I began my music teaching career in 2000. I taught elementary music for 6 years and then took 13 years off to raise my daughters. I am now back in the classroom and I am loving it. It makes my heart happy to see the smiles and hear the laughter music brings to each student at our school.
Fun facts about me:
* I LOVE TO SING!
* I am married with 2 daughters (ages 12 & 14)
* I marched with Carolina Crown Drum & Bugle Corps for 3 years
* I am a swim coach and instructor
* I have a maltese and 3 cats
* I love to exercise and walk with my friends
* I LOVE to read, especially mysteries
* I have been skydiving
