    Mr. Newbre's family includes his wife, Laura - counselor at Maple H.S., a stepson and foster son who are in their 30's. When not perfecting lessons, Mr. Newbre paints, plays games, and cares for WAY too many dogs. He and Theodore Roosevelt share the same birth date thus: 


    "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy or suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt
