Ms. Wakika Newton


I am Ms. Newton. I am so excited for this new year. I love that we have the opportunity to learn a new way of learning. Videoconferencing is pretty cool! This is my 10th year at APE. I have taught 4th and 5th grade at APE. I teach my favorite subjects math and science. I have my bachelors and my masters.  Teaching is my passion. I love waking in the morning and joining TEAMS to see my students and share in their lives. As a student enters into my virtual classroom, my goal is to challenge him or her. It is my responsibility to help every child to find his or her highest potential. I truly believe success in and out of the classroom is based on how much a person practices. Mastering multiplication facts is imperative and we will do several activities to help learn them.   I encourage students to make practicing part of their regular routine.  

I am the mother of four impressive children. Three are grown and my youngest is attending her freshman year at Elkins High School. I am a Houstonian and Houston fanatic. I love the Texans & the Rockets. I enjoy attending sporting events, amazon shopping, traveling and pretending to be a professional golfer at Top Golf. 

Even though this year starts a little different, we are going to make it the best year. We will use TEAMS to get to know one another and develop a wonderful classroom environment.  I am looking forward to a year of inspiring my students, equipping them with knowledge that excels beyond the classroom to allow them to soar farther than they ever imagine.
