Mr. Paul Newby

Hello, my name is Paul Newby, and I am excited to be your child's music education teacher this year.  I recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Mount Olive with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education.  Although we are facing some unprecedented challenges, I look forward to finding creative solutions to further your child's music education. 

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX, joining the Marine Corps after high school.  I spent 13 years working in field artillery and aviation electronics, finishing up my last tour as an instructor.  I found my love for teaching as an instructor, and decided to pursue my degree in music education.  I attended Coastal Carolina Community College for two years before transferring to the University of Mount Olive.  After completing my student teaching at Dixon High School, I was offered a job at Sand Ridge Elementary, and I am thrilled to begin my new career here!

Let's make this another great year at Sand Ridge Elementary!
