All About Me!

Connie Lewis
My name is Connie Lewis and I've been a teacher for 16 years.  I'm also a mother of two Portland Public graduates.  Both of my children attended Madison High school.  My son is a computer engineer and my daughter is the chief of staff for Senator Burdick in Salem.  I also have a grandson, Jackson, who has captured my heart.

In my spare time: I love to travel, read, bowl, play games, and bargain shop at garage sales.   My favorite subject to teach is math and I believe strongly in teaching children responsibility.
