Julie Lewis 4th Fairview Elementary Vote Julie Lewis Julie Lewis is an exceptional teacher. She has a motto in her class which I absolutely love. If a student is struggling with something, she has them say "I don't know how to.. YET!" (i.e. "I don't know how to do multiplication... YET!") Meaning there is always room to learn and be better. She really cares about her students and works hard with them to make sure that they succeed. Vote for Julie Lewis Thanks for voting, come back in 24 hours and vote again!
