Mr. Chris Newsom
Welcome! I am so excited and grateful to begin my teaching career here at La Cima Middle School. It is my goal to teach others not only how to become a better musician but how to grow as an individual as well. I have a great deal of interest when it comes to the success of my students.
The defining moment in my life when I knew that I wanted to become a choral educator was in the 7th grade when I participated in my first District Honor Choir. I remember saying to myself, "I want to do that for a living" as I watched the conductor rehearse over 200 middle school students. He had fun teaching us music and we all (the students) had fun creating music together!
