Ethridge Elementary Gifted and Talented Teacher Heather Lewis is a dedicated teacher that ALL Ethridge Eagles know and admire. Heather can be found moving boxes or donating supplies for new staff members as they orient themselves on campus. She serves as a campus liaison with The Colony Parks and Recreation Department and is vital to organizing and orchestrating Ethridge’s Fun Run activities and incentive program. She embraces the Ethridge community and readily volunteers to drive her jeep with a kayak on top in The Colony’s Homecoming Beach-themed Parade. Not only is she a technology guru who willingly helps students and staff, but Mrs. Lewis is one of the morning ambassadors at Ethridge and can dance with the best of them to “It’s Raining Tacos” or “Baby Shark” while welcoming students in the early morning hours. Former students seek out Mrs. Lewis when they return to campus to share their current successes with her. She is a servant leader who positively affirms those around her, and finds the silver lining – even on the hardest of days.
