Hi! My name is Leah Lewis and I am a Reading Interventionist here at Millbrook Elementary School. This is my 33rd year as a teacher and my 21st here at Millbrook. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop College and my Master's degree in Reading from USC-Columbia. I have experience teaching third, fourth, and fifth graders. My husband and I live here in Aiken and are parents to two boys. Both of them are students at Clemson University. I love to read! I feel that reading is the backbone of all academic areas and students need to be able to comprehend what they see in text. This is a major building block in a lifelong journey for all students. I truly feel that the more students read and are exposed to reading, the better readers they will become!! Therefore, I am truly excited about our READ 180/SYSTEM 44 program, which I will be teaching. If you need to get in touch with me, the best way would be to email me at LEAHL@acpsd.net or if you can't email me, then call the front office at 803-641-2580 and I will get in touch with you as soon as I can. We know this year will be full of challenges, but I truly believe that together, we will be successful!! Looking forward to a great year!!
