Welcome to third grade! My name is Jess Newman. I have been teaching here at Olson Elementary since 2001. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders, but third graders are my favorite! I have an undergraduate degree from UW-River Falls and a Master's degree from Hamline University.
I live in Shakopee with my husband, two sons, and daughter. When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family and friends, going to the cabin, watching movies, running, water skiing, taking pictures, lifting weights, going out for sushi, and playing guitar and piano.
I want your child to have a wonderful year! If you have questions or concerns or if you'd like to volunteer in our classroom please do not hesitate to contact me.
