About Lewis

I am a N.J. Certified retired teacher in ESL, English and Social Studies. I've taught grades K-12, adults, and college. I have about twenty years of teaching experience. I was also a principal of an alternative high school in Arizona.

It's hard to put into words all the reasons why I want to be a teacher. Some days when I take time to ponder the immensity that the role of a teacher entails I feel overwhelmed. Some days I find myself just dying for my chance to "get out there" and touch children's lives. It's hard to describe, but something inside of me tells me that though it's not going to be easy, this is what I am meant to do.

I want to live a life of service to others, especially children. I want to nurture them and be the person that lifts them up. I want them to feel like they could fly if they put their mind to it. I want to show them the beauty, power and courage inside them, even if they don't always see it in themselves. I want my classroom to be an exciting adventure land but also a safe haven all at once. I want children to leave my class with more confidence, compassion, and enthusiasm for life and learning than they entered it. I will teach them the skills they need to know to succeed academically, and the skills they will need to love themselves and others. Perhaps I will only plant seeds that I may never personally see flower, but I will not ever give up. As a teacher I will have great power to change lives. This power will be humbling, exhilarating, overwhelming, frightening, but exceedingly worthwhile.
