    I could think of no better of a person to receive this awards I first hand know how much she values each and everyone of her students and their families as she has taught my children never once ever has a more deserving person gotten this honor or deserved it. She has the patience of an Angel a voice that can south and give you piece always there to spread joy and laughter and teach each and every child. Amd when not teach from the classroom she is a pilar in the community making sure if there is a need somewhere she will find the correct solution. Thank you Mrs. Holly Lewis so being such a positive inspiration to all you come in contact with. I say that with full love of my heart.
