Brea Lewis graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development & Family Studies.
Originally from the Dallas area, Brea was very much influenced by her 8th grade History teacher, Mr. Parker. According to Brea, Mr. Parker had an uncanny ability to establish authentic relationships with his students, while also “bringing history to life and making it fun.”
During her residency year, Brea looks forward to establishing similar relationships with the elementary students she will teach at Preston Hollow Elementary School. She is excited for the opportunity to spend an entire year learning and developing under the guidance of her mentor teacher, Ms. McNeill – while also challenging her students to reach their academic goals. She is a firm believer that students learn better when the material is presented and taught to them in a ‘relevant manner that makes sense to them.’ Enhancing their learning with real world and hands-on experiences is an aspect of teaching that Brea is most looking forward to.
In her free time Brea enjoys reading (especially Harry Potter), working out and … Fun Fact: She is an awesome bowler!
