    I, Charlene Rutland-Newton, am a teacher of  twelve years.  This twelfth year is my first year at Dutchtown High School, and my fourth year in Henry County.  Prior to teaching, I pursued the allied health profession. The profession taught me that educating individuals is crucial for effective patient participation.  This educational process involved the patients and their families. After 5 years of mastering educating patients and their families, I was called to teach secondary education. The philosophy that I used in allied health continued with me in the education field.  I believe that we must educate students and their parents.  The more knowledgeable we are, the more apt we will be in ensuring our educational success.

    I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Paine College, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  There, I also played four years of basketball, two years of softball, and ran cross-country for a year.  I, then, received my Master and Doctorate of Science in Physical Therapy.  As an educator, I have a broad field science certification.  I currently teach physical science and environmental science.

    I can be reached at crutlandnewton@henry.k12.ga.us.  Tutorial is available on Monday from 3:30-4:30.  Please contact me with any concerns.  It is going to be a great year!
