Mrs. Newsom is very happy about getting to be part of the Thornton Elementary team again this year. Mrs. Newsom holds a degree in Music Education and Music Performance from Colorado State University. Mrs. Newsom spends much of her time researching exciting ways to teach music to elementary students. Aside from teaching elementary music Mrs. Newsom plays the Bassoon (a double reed instrument.) When not teaching, Mrs. Newsom enjoys spending time with her family and playing with her puppies, Daisy and Piper.
