Little known about Mrs. Lewis is that she has a ton of pet peeves, mostly about grammar! Her favorite part of teaching is getting to influence the next generation of leaders; helping to shape them into responsible, civic minded, community minded adults. Her favorite quote is “A pint of example is worth a barrelful of advice.” Derived from Philippians 3:17-“Be imitators of me, my brothers. Take as your guide those who follow the example we set.”
