My name is Connie Lemons. I graduated from DeQuincy High Schoool in DeQuincy, Louisiana in 1974. I graduated from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 2000.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I also have a Texas Certification for Elementary Self-Contained for grades 1-8 and Special Education for grades EC-12.
I have been teaching in Newton for 19 years. I began teaching in 2000. I have taught first and second grade at Newton Elementary. I am currently teaching resource classes.
I taught two and a half years in Louisiana before coming to Newton.
I was married in 1974 and I have two children. I have a son and a daughter. They are both grown and gone. They have blessed me with 7 grandchildren. Most of my spare time is spent with my grandchildren.
When I am not teaching or spending time with my grandkids, I am usually planting something in my yard. I love growing trees and plants at my home. I also love to cook.
