Mrs. Lewis is from Sparta, Michigan which is a small farming village just north of Grand Rapids. Her upbringing in a small town as the youngest of eight children nurtured her passions to serve others, lead by example, and give back to the community. These passions, in addition to several phenomenal teachers along the way, led her to choose teaching as her profession. She believes teaching is a genuine honor and great responsibility because it entails the privilege of helping students blossom into empowered young adults.
Mrs. Lewis graduated from Grand Grand Valley State University in April 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Education and a minor in Psychology. While at Grand Valley, she taught abroad in the Netherlands, was co-captain of her intramural soccer team, was Academic Chair of the Honors College Community Council (ANCHOR), and worked as a Lead Research Consultant for the university libraries. She also coached soccer and helped facilitate a youth group for a local church. Mrs. Lewis is eager to bring these various experiences into her classroom and is excited to empower students to recognize their unique potential!
Mrs. Lewis has taught at WMAA for the past four years and is looking forward to continuing sharing a vision of increased empathy, kindness, curiosity, and positivity with her English 12, English 11, and AP English literature classes this year!
