I'm thrilled to be a part of the Aikin family! This is my 13th year to teach Art at Aikin Elementary and my 21st year to teach school. I previously taught 6-8th grade choir at West Ridge Middle School in Austin, Texas from 1991-96 followed by teaching 5th grade at St. Mary's Episcopal School in Big Spring, Texas from 1997-2000. I'm married to Duane Lewis, and we have 4 amazing kids that are our most treasured gifts from God! Luke is 25 and is a 3rd year medical student at the University of Texas School of Medicine in San Antonio, TX. Parker is 21 and is a senior, Mechanical & Energy Engineering student at the University of North Texas. Lilly is 17 and will be a senior at Paris High and the baby of the family,Tate, turned 15 on Aug. 21 and will be a freshman at Paris High. Our family has dealt with some life-threatening health issues over the years, but we've been blessed beyond belief! We love to spend time together, love watching all types of sporting events (especially the Texas Longhorns which is where my husband received his PhD. in Medicinal Chemistry and where our oldest two children were born) and enjoy traveling as often as we can.
I graduated from Alva High School in Alva, Oklahoma in 1986 and from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK in 1991.
I look forward to meeting all of you throughout the school year!
