Second Grade Teacher
Compass Elementary

My name is Erica Newsome and I am excited to be joining the Compass/Platte County family. I have been teaching for 16 years. My first job was as a Title 1 Reading teacher for one year. A second grade teacher for 13 years and one year teaching third grade. The last two years I have taught 1st grade at Compass, before making the transition back to second again!

I moved to Platte County in May of 2018 and bought a house with my significant other Matthew. It is a full house with three kiddos and one very spoiled yorkie named Maggie.  I am very happy to be living where I now teach and get to know more of the community, students, and families better. I like to spend my free time reading, working out, shopping, and going out to try new restaurants and places. Go pirates!

Orientation 21/22
