My educational background includes Stetson University, where I earned a Master’s degree in Education. In addition, I attended Southwestern University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on a doctorate in curriculum and instruction. Finally, I am bilingual and enjoy Spanish and enjoy singing as a hobby. Mrs. Lewis and her husband have a 6 year old son KJ who is entering first grade.
