Lewis teaches at Minnie Ruffin Elementary School and was nominated by A'keem Starr.
Starr says Lewis is his favorite teacher because she's always willing to do what it takes to help you learn.
"No matter what happens she's right there to help you out," says Starr. "It doesn't matter how many times you call her, she's still there and has patience."
Lewis says she's overwhelmed by the love and thanks she receives from her students.
"I watched my mom teach for 31 years and wanted to make an impact," says Lewis.
