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. This is my 12th 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 greeting my students with an elbow bump. My goal is to challenge each student 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 sophomore 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. 

I know the last few years have brought a lot of new ways of teaching and interacting with students. It's an exciting time to be back in the classroom building. 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 imagined.
