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 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
