Is more than a teacher, she is a mentor and a friend. She cares more about her students than any teacher I have ever encountered. To have Cheryl Newton as a teacher is a blessing. You will grow musica

Newton is an amazing teacher and mentor. She was a remarkable impact on my music education as well as life in general in high school. I learned so much from her, not only in regards to music but life

She is a wonderful woman with a true passion for music. She is the glue that holds the band program together and I do not know what my high school experience would have been like without her.

She is my favorite teacher - she is understanding, chill, but she has expectations at the same time. I truly love being in her Music Theory class - she cares for a student's education, not just grades

irrational, sometimes unpredictable, undoubtably one of the best music educators in the state, but if you're looking for a mentor and friend, turn to Taylor as she is far more understanding

Most of her decisions are selfishly motivated. She is very competent regarding music and education, but doesn't always make the wisest decisions.

I think she is preparing for her retirement, and has taken any emotion out of her teaching. Her decisions seem to be irrational at times.
