Valerie Lewis is dedicated to the transformation of learning through engaging and creative activities for ALL students. Today’s classroom has not varied much from classrooms 100 years ago--- that is problematic! We are still behind many other countries and we should be leading the way.
She grew up in Miami, FL and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Oakwood University and a Master’s in Special Education from Howard University. She currently resides and teaches High School Language Arts in Georgia. She is a wife and mother of 3 beautiful souls.
Her belief is that critical learning possibilities should be activated in order to prepare students for NOW skills.  This will enable them to compete on a global scale! Students need to lift their voice and advocate for themselves but this skill should be modeled and taught. Lessons should be student-centered and not mainly based upon the teacher’s interests. In this manner, cater to a variety of learning styles. Valerie is an encourager and motivator and has the mentality that the TEAM is better together.

In order to strengthen the team, she understands that learning MUST be personalized for the teacher and the student alike in order to create IMPACT. The formula should always be ONE SIZE FITS...ONE! Her mission is to show that learning is a daring lifelong journey but ultimately…TRANSFORMS.
