Mrs. Newinski

Hello! ¡Hola! Salaan! Nyob zoo!

My name is Mrs. Newinski, previously known as Ms. Garcia Fisher. (I am getting married in October 2021 which is why my name is changing!) I know the start of this year may feel strange after Distance Learning and everything we have been through in the past year and a half but together we will have a great year! I truly believe that together we will all strive to become life-long learners who love reading and learning! This will be my third year in SPPS but my first year here at E-STEM and I cannot wait to learn from you and join this amazing school community! 

My love for reading started when I was in middle school, and it has only grown since then. When I’m not enjoying a great book, I also enjoy going for walks with my partner and our puppy, yoga, working out, kayaking, and cooking!

I understand that Distance Learning had so many challenges and going into this school year will take some time to transition back into building, building community, and feeling safe. Please know I am here with you and here to support you and your family! I will work to be as flexible and understanding as possible. I need you though! 

Every student is a reader, and every reader is a leader. I am eagerly looking forward to a great year! 

Mrs. Newinski
