Algebra II College Prep
Honors Algebra II
10th Grade Co–Lead Teacher
Hello! My name is Stephen Lewis, and I am super excited to start my 3rd year with the New West Charter family for the 2019_2020 school year.
I grew up around the corner from New West and graduated from University High School in 2001. After a few years of playing collegiate baseball, I found my true passion for education while tutoring high school students in Chemistry. When I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies in 2008, I moved to Long Beach to complete a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics at Long Beach State in 2012. This will be my Third year as a New West Eagle, but my 8th year as a mathematics teacher. My first years in the profession, I taught middle school math in the Watts/Compton area and was nominated for Teacher of the Year in 2017 as part of Green Dot Public Schools. I am eager and excited to mold the minds of young adults who are intrinsically motivated to achieve at the highest level possible.
When I’m not lesson-planning or designing fun school activities, I enjoy doing almost anything outside. If you can’t find me at the gym, I’m either playing at the park, running on the beach, taking care of my dog named Kahlua, or traveling the world with my wife (Five Continents and counting!!). I spend my leisure time cooking, spending time with family, watching movies, or going to baseball games. (Go Dodgers!!)
This year, I will be teaching Algebra I, Algebra II College Prep, and Algebra II Honors. This will be a great year and I can’t wait to meet and develop a positive rapport with ALL of you!!!
