Ms. Phyllis Newman

I would like to first introduce myself to you my name is Phyllis Newman and I am entering my 17th year of teaching with Ann Arbor Public Schools Westerman preschool and family center. I have been in this journey of teaching our youngest learners for 25+ years. As program director of my churches preschool center as well as attending EMU earning a BS degree in education as well as a CDA in early childhood development. My passion for our youngest learners and their families has been a true joy and blessing in my life.

I am married to Dale Newman and we are the proud parents of 3; Our son Christian has his Phd in computer programming, our middle son Jordan is working on his masters in public relations and our daughter Bethany has a BA in fashion merchandising. I enjoy reading, sewing, eating out for breakfast, and chocolate with nuts, but most of all family time playing games and doing karaoke.


We look forward to spending time this year getting to know your family and watching your child develop and learn new skills.
