I believe as a teacher it is my duty to teach all students that enter my classroom. I feel that every child has the right to receive an education. I believe that all students can learn. As a teacher I must help teach the students to learn to their potential, or "personal best". I also believe that my classroom needs to be a safe, inviting, comfortable place for all of our students. I believe the most important aspects of learning is for the student to feel included and valued. A successful inclusive classroom will include students with disabilities, different religions, and different ethnic or socioeconomic backgrounds.
I believe that by making necessary classroom accommodations, every student can benefit and learn. By assuring students that they are valued and not isolated I will vary my inclusion process for a student with different abilities or strengths. The world is a diverse place. One of the ways learning can be enhanced is to embrace differences and incorporate them into the classroom. By including and valuing the contributions of students from diverse academic, physical, economic, ethnic or cultural backgrounds, the classroom will be a place that supports equality and diversity.
By promoting inclusion and diversity in the classroom, we can serve to prepare students for the world. Social development of all students will be enhanced by the daily interactions with students of diverse backgrounds, or abilities.Every student deserves to learn to the best of their ability. I will do the best I can to embrace and enhance each student’s potential to learn. ~ Mrs. Lewis
I am honored and privileged to be your child’s teacher this year! My name is Teresa Lewis, and I am very proud to be a part of such a wonderful school system.
I earned my bachelor degree in elementary education at East Tennessee State University. I then furthered my education at Tusculum College with a concentration in Special Education. I am currently working towards my Masters degree at Tusculum. Throughout my life I have been very fortunate to have had immeasurable learning opportunities and experiences during my educational studies. I was able to work with so many excellent mentors and advisors throughout my educational career from several local schools. They have helped me to get to where I am today, and for that I am eternally grateful.
I am a lifelong resident of Washington County Tennessee. As an alumnus of West View and David Crockett, I have been provided with opportunities to watch, learn from, observe, and work with some AMAZING teachers growing from a young child into an adult in the field of education. In addition to my family, I have life-long relationships with many wonderful teachers that helped shape me into the person I am today.
I am married to Terry Lewis and we have three children Ryan (a Senior studying Biology at ETSU), Morgan (an 10th grader at DCHS), and 4 year old Alyssa, a Pre-K student at Lamar. We have two dogs Penny and Tucker.
I love to read and I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.
I'm excited to see how your child will grow academically this year!
