Ms. Shelly Lewis
I have been teaching 19 years. This is my 16th year at Millbrook Elementary and I feel this is my home away from home. I love to travel, read and watch movies. My husband Frank is my best friend and together we have 6 kids. Alex is 23, Marcus is 19, Nic is 18, Isaiah is 16, London is 8 and Kyleigh is 4. Our kids are the most important people in our lives and we love spending time together. I graduated from Millbrook High School here in Raleigh and then went to NC State for two years. I finished my education degree and graduated from Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC .
Why I like working with kids...
I have always been passionate about education. Knowledge is power and with that power we have the ability to change the world! Children bring truth, innocence, vitality and a perspective to the world and they should be valued for their contributions. I desire to see the difference they will one day make in our community and world.
Why I am excited about our school's theme, Environmental and Community Connections...
I absolutely love nature and spending time outdoors. I was raised in a small West Virginia town and the outdoors was my playground. My parents encouraged exploration, inquiry and compassion for the earth and all its inhabitants. I can't remember a time or a memory growing up that did not involve a camping trip, a night under the stars or a hike up a mountainside. I want to share that love and appreciation with my students.
