Mosaica Online Happenings

Staff Spotlight - Chris Lewis
I grew up in Tennessee. I am the oldest of three children. I have a sister, Stephanie, who is sixteen years younger than me, and a brother, Cody, who is nineteen years younger than me. I am married to Melody who is a 4th grade teacher. We met in our first year of teaching at the same school and got married two years later. We chose to "adopt" my sister when she was younger. She is our only "kid" and will graduate from college this semester. We also have our Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Tasha, who keeps up busy! I earned a B.S. in Recreation with a Health minor from Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. I later finished my PE/Health License for teaching grades K-12. In 2010, I finished my Masters degree in Education. I am in my sixteenth year of teaching. I have been teaching for Mosaica since 2011 and really love it! My favorite hobbies are playing sports, collecting sports cards, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
