Ms. Erica Newsome
1st Grade Teacher
My name is Erica Newsome and I am excited to be joining the Compass/Platte County family. I have been teaching for 15 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. I am very eager to start teaching first grade where the foundations of reading are set for a lifetime of success!
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!
