About Me
What is your role(s) at Centennial High School.: 

Hi Dragons! I am Beth Lewis, and I teach language arts and humanities.

How long have you worked at Centennial?: 

I have worked at CHS since 2007 and started my teaching career in 1996.

What do you love about working at Centennial?: 

What I love about teaching at CHS is the freedom of curriculum and the ability to teach what students are most interested in. I also love the small class size which permits me to get to know my students (and their needs) well.

What is a hobby you have outside of school?: 

Outside of school I enjoy reading and watching independent films.

What is one piece of advice you have for students of CHS?: 

My advice to all CHS students is this...1. Catch your vision; 2. Never give up that vision; 3. Always do your best and your vision will come true.

My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

Basic Composition -- where we learn to write, write, write!

World Literature -- where we read modern young adult novels, nonfiction memoirs, and graphic novels.

Humanities -- where we learn about ancient cultures and their art, architecture, literature and daily life.

About My Classroom: 

Every year, I try to make my classroom a supportive environment where everyone will feel comfortable taking risks and pushing themselves to their learning edge. Take a risk for learning!
