Excellence in a Creative Environment for Learning
Teacher Feature: Meet Mr. Lewis
Mr. Brandon Lewis is a new addition to our Dobyns-Bennett EXCEL faculty. He joins DBE after teaching History for two years a Unaka High School. Brandon is a proud graduate from Daniel Boone High School, and he went on to further his education at East Tennessee State University.
In his spare time, Mr. Lewis enjoys snowboarding, basketball, and traveling. His traveling adventures have taken him to the Great Pyramid of Giza, and he has seen Shaun White compete at the Winter X-Games. When he is not found hitting the slopes, Brandon can be found spending time with his dog, Nefe or his cat, Louis,
Mr. Lewis is most excited about teaching at DBE for the endless educational possibilities our flexible environment allows.
