Lori Lewis

Why She's Great >


Lori Lewis has been in education for over 25 years.  She believes that education should be tailored to the student, that it must be fun, and that thematic learning enhances thinking while doing.  Creative and critical thinking should be available at every appropriate opportunity. Project/problem-based learning allows children to guide their own learning choices enhancing 21st century skills in communication and collaboration.


Lori holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Elementary Education.  She went on to earn her Master of Arts in Education Psychology while earning her administration in gifted and talented and reading specialist certificates.  She is passionate about gifted and talented education and has worked with several school districts and with education groups to promote best practices in serving this population.


There have been several roles that she has held including experiences as being a director of a private school, location manager for several companies, camp director, an education consultant, educator trainer, and classroom teacher, certified from nursery thru 12th grade.  Her favorite role is being a mom to two wonderful kids.  She and her husband live in Pooler with their “grandcat” Jack.
