Ms. Dana Newkirk

I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Language Arts and Spanish.  I was hired in 1994 to teach 6th grade here in Carson City. After 12 years of teaching 6th grade, I made the leap to 5th grade where I taught for 8 years. After a year of teaching 6th grade math and Spanish, I am back in 5th grade teaching Language Arts and Social Studies.
