I'm thrilled to be a part of the Aikin family! This is my 16th year to teach Art at Aikin Elementary and my 24 th 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 28 and is an emergency room physician inTulsa, Oklahoma at Hillcrest Hospital. He’s married to Lauren who is in her final year of dental school. Parker is 24. He’s an engineer in the space industry in Littleton, CO where he works for Lockheed Martin. His wife (Jessica) works for a designing company that builds and develops schools. Lilly is 20 and attends the University of Texas at Dallas. Tate is our youngest & he’s a senior at Paris High where he plays on the State Qualifying golf team. He also competes in the North Texas Junior PGA and plays on the Texas Junior Golf Tour. 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!
