Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Chris Lewis. In the ideal world, I would love to be teaching fourth or fifth grade in either an inclusion or pull-out classroom. I currently have a teaching degree in elementary education, from New Jersey City University, and my state certificate of eligibility for teacher of students with disabilities, and currently taking classes at Rowen.
My teaching career began, in 2000, in a public school as an assistant teacher in a self-contained class consisting of students with various learning disabilities. I was then hired by a private school in Mahwah, NJ for emotionally disturbed students. There I was a teacher for grades five and six, teaching all subjects before moving to science for grades five through eight. I taught there for seven years.
In 2013, my wife's job relocated from North Jersey to Pennsylvania and we had to move. After moving to the area, I started as a substitute teacher and was hired to finish the year as a long-term substitute, in the Harker School. For the 2014/2015 school year, I was hired as a long-term substitute, in the fifth grade, in an inclusion/pullout classroom. This past year I was hired as a full – time teacher with the Swedesboro-Woolwich School District as an inclusion teacher with the fourth grade.
Outside of school, I am a soccer coach with the Swedesboro-Woolwich Soccer Association and also umpire baseball. I am a graduate of the Wendelstadt Professional Baseball Umpire School and subbed with the Can-Am Independent Baseball League during the summer. My wife and I have two children, Zachary age 14 and Justin age 9 and a Dog Gunner. We reside in Woolwich.
I believe in an open line of communication, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
