Welcome to 4th Grade!
My name is Rebekah Newhouse (formerly Triolo) and I am so excited to be your child’s ELA teacher this year. I was born and raised in Arizona and my extended family still lives there. I also lived and taught for 6 years in Colorado. I moved to New Jersey 18 years ago and have been teaching in New Jersey since then. My daughter is a junior at Stockton University and my son is a sophomore at Central Regional High School. Although I love going to the beach, I really miss the mountains! It is always good to go home to Arizona to visit my family and spend time in the mountains.
This is my 4th year at Asher Holmes and my 25th year of teaching. I have taught both elementary and special education classes during my career. 4th and 5th grades are my favorite grades to teach. My goal as an English/Language Arts teacher is to find ways to show my students how much fun reading and writing can be. It will be my personal challenge to connect students with books that they find interesting and engaging. I will also be helping students to focus on adding details and descriptions to their writing in addition to working on organization and structure.
Please feel free to contact me through email at [email protected] . You can also write a note in your child’s planner which I check every day. I am looking forward to getting to know your child and to a wonderful year ahead.
