Mrs. Celesta Lewis

This is my 9th year at Lowes Island and my 17th year in education. My experience is varied and includes teaching English in Japan, substitute teaching, working as a special education teacher assistant, and teaching kids with special needs. Prior to my time in education, I worked as a Human Resources Manager, which I believe gives me a unique view on preparing students for independence (our ultimate goal). My philosophy revolves around building strong relationships with my students, so that they trust me and are willing to risk engaging in higher level thinking.

I live in the Potomac Falls area with my husband and two cats (Mango & Kiwi) and have two grown sons. My outside interests include reading, watching movies & Broadway shows, travelling, and refreshing my Japanese on the Duolingo app.

I look forward to an engaging year with our Lowes Island family!
