Beth Newbery

I have been with the Arlington Central School District for 12 years. I have held multiple positions including third grade and enrichment for grades 1-4. I have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching first grade for the past six years. I cannot wait to begin this very exciting year.

I have lived in Dutchess County since I was in second grade. I love the Hudson Valley. My husband and I live in Hopewell Junction. We have a Yellow Lab. She is the best dog ever and puts up with a lot of love from the boys. I have two boys at home. They are 6 years old and 2 years old. They are the loves of my life; and you will hear lots and lots of stories about them.

My goal for the class is to help all of my students reach their full potential. I would also like to help my students to discover a love for learning that will remain with them throughout their school careers.
