Hi! My name is Kristen Lewis and I will be your child’s second grade teacher. Please read on to learn a little more about the person who will be teaching your child this year.
I grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois and received by Bachelor’s in Education at Illinois State University. After graduating I moved to San Bernardino, California and taught both second and third grade. While I was there I met my husband which led me to the Philadelphia area. We have a loving 14 year old son named Cooper and two active cats.
I have worked in the Upper Merion School District at Candlebrook and Gulph for the last 20 years and I am excited to be back in person this year! I have a Masters Degree in Education and am always continuing my quest for knowledge that will help serve my students.
I believe in a positive and safe learning environment. My goal is to create self-esteem and a love of learning in each child. I will use my creativity to provide a variety of lessons that will allow for student interaction and hands-on learning. I also believe in a strong school-home connection, so please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at any time.
E-mail is the best way to contact me as I check my e-mail several times a day. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also send in a written note. To better ensure that I receive it, please place it in your child’s homework folder.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year ahead with your child. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year!
Mrs. Kristen Lewis
