Hello and Welcome to our Class Webpage.
I am so excited to be a South Newton Tiger!
My name is Christina Poole and this will be my first year teaching at South Newton. I was born and raised in FL and moved to NC in 2004. I have my Elementary Education degree from App State (Go App!!) and I have taught 3rd grade, 1st Grade, and 6th Grade. This will be year 6 for me and I know it will be the best year yet. I live in Hickory with my husband Owen and our two boys, Jake and Luke. Jake starts High School this year and Luke starts Middle School this year. During my free time I like to read (I am a big Harry Potter fan), hike, relax, and eat (not necessarily in that order).
Below you will find information in regards to our class schedule, 3rd Grade curriculum, newsletter, events, helpful 3rd grade links, and other useful information. Please let me know if there is anything you have questions about or need assistance with.
Don't forget to sign up for Class Dojo! This is the best way to get information to me, to chat with me, and to see how your student is doing throughout the day.
Thank you and I look forward to getting to know you this year!
