Taking young minds seriously

Mrs. Casey Newman

“I always aim to keep little brains engaged.” – Mrs. Newman

Mrs. Casey Newman comes to us from New Hampshire.  She earned her Master of Arts in teaching Spanish from the University of New Hampshire.  She has taught high school Spanish and also preK.  Mrs. Newman enjoys developing curricula, pouring over books to develop lessons, and, especially, weaving art into lessons as a complimentary method of instruction.  Mrs. Newman is an accomplished artist, and has even created coloring book pages for young artists.

In addition to teaching the preK class at Veritas, Mrs. Newman also teaches Spanish. She previously taught Spanish in the public school system in New Hampshire where she found that many kids were often dismissive of other cultures.  Unfortunately, in the public school setting there was no room to teach virtues rooted in Judeo-Christian principles, so her students lacked a sense of temperance, prudence, and true justice.  As a teacher, Mrs. Newman strives to help students discern and make good judgments rather than succumbing to moral relativism.  She is looking forward to challenging her students to seek the good and the beautiful in all they will do.

Casey is married to Dr. Nicholas Newman, and they have three children.  She enjoys the arts, her vegetable garden, and baking.
