Ms. Carisa Newsom- 1st Grade
Hello! My name is Ms. Newsom. The 2021-2022 school year will be my second year at Oak Point Elementary. I grew up in a large family of 6 children in Carrollton, Texas, and my 3 children and I live in Prosper. I followed in my aunt's footsteps and fulfilled my dream of becoming a teacher and have been teaching since 2018. I have a bachelors degree from Southern Methodist University and it was during my experience at SMU that I knew I wanted to pursuit my passion of early childhood education. My family and I volunteer regularly with local dog rescues and are known as the rabbit and bird rescuers in our neighborhood! We strive to show compassion for others in all we do. I love reading books and hope to pass that love for reading on to all of my students. My goal is to help my students become strong readers and leaders by taking them on many learning adventures throughout the school year. I enjoy inspiring children to learn and watching them achieve their goals! I love first grade and can't wait for all of the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have this year.
