Degrees and Certifications:
It is a great honor to be the 7th grade Dean at Sterling Middle School. Prior to this position, I worked as the ELL (English Language Learner) Staff Development Trainer for Loudoun County Public Schools, in which I oversaw professional learning for educators across the county as well as curriculum development and implementation for grades KG to 12. I am a former ELL teacher at Sterling Middle School. I taught students belonging to grades 6th through 8th across all proficiency levels of language acquisition. In my years working in Loudoun County Public Schools, I have served in various leadership roles that include curriculum development, VGLA (Virginia Grade Level Alternative Assessment) Lead Teacher, and ELL Lead Teacher for the district. Similarly, I have presented at various professional conferences focusing on the instruction of language learners at the secondary level.
I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Master's Degree in English as a Second Language Education from Marymount University. Currently, I am attending The George Washington University pursuing the degree of Educational Specialist in Education Administration and Leadership.
A little bit about Mrs. Lewis:
I moved to the United States from Lima, Perú when I was fourteen years-old. When I first arrived, I did not speak the English language and had to work harder to not only learn a new language, but also graduate high school with higher level classes. Trying my best and working hard have always been present in my former instruction and current work.
In my free time, I study as I have books to read and exams to take, but also enjoy time with my supportive husband, two kittens (Diego and Maya), dog (Simba), my parents, and brother.
I am so excited to be back at Sterling Middle School and have the privilege to work with such great group of students in 7th grade!
