University of Idaho - 2007 Elementary Teacher of the Month for September 2021-22

Larissa Newton

Hello! My name is Larissa Newton, and I'm so excited about teaching another year at Dalton Elementary. This is my sixteenth year teaching. I look forward to working collaboratively with you as your child embarks on his/her journey in first grade! 
I graduated from the University of Idaho in 2007 and took my first teaching job at Dalton as a fourth grade teacher.  After that first year, I had the opportunity to teach first grade and, with the exception of a fabulous K/1 year, I haven't turned back! 
I grew up in Hayden, Idaho.  My husband, daughter and I love to spend time outdoors. We love to hike, play at the lake, and travel as much as possible.  In my down time, I love to curl up with a great book and a cup of coffee.  
I'm looking forward to another great year at Dalton. Our school is truly a special place!
