7th Grade English
I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with you.
My name is De’Jour Newsome, and I will be your son/daughter’s English Language Arts instructor this school year. I am a seventh year English Language Arts teacher and have worked in the Los Angeles area for the past seven years. Prior to becoming a teacher at New West Charter School I was in the teaching credential program at California State University, Los Angeles. I also earned my Bachelor’s degree in English Literature with an emphasis in Secondary Education and MA in Education (Reading) from California State University, Los Angeles as well. Over the past seven years, I have worked with students of all academic ages in many different subject areas from many multicultural backgrounds.
I love teaching Language Arts, and I care deeply about each of my students. For the 2016-2017 school year, I have planned many engaging, exciting, and challenging learning opportunities for students.
