Donna Lewis is a native of Maryland who moved to Huntsville in 2018 with Raymond, her husband of thirty years, and five of their nine children. After graduating from George Washington University with a BS in Dance Therapy, she joined the United States Air Force in 1986, where she served as Crew and Instructor Weapons Director until 1991. She made the decision to home educate her children then and is presently homeschooling her last three children. In addition to teaching her children, she served as a Classical Conversations Foundations and Essentials Tutor, Challenge III Director, Support Representative, and Parent Practicum Speaker. Through Classical Conversations, she regularly attended online workshops and training sessions to hone her skills.  She also recently began volunteering as a tutor at The Legacy Center in Huntsville where she assists students enrolled in public school online learning programs.

Donna possesses a strong background in individualized lesson planning and instruction in both home and classroom settings. She is adept at encouraging parents to teach their children at home and enjoys demonstrating and teaching them how to achieve their goal. Her mission as a mother is to teach her children to know what they believe and think and to also be able to explain and have conversations with grace and humility. For all children, she hopes to lead them in conversations that teach them how to think and provide enriching information on which to think. To that end, her favorite educational saying is “the quality of the questions you ask determines the quality of the answers you get”.

She is an avid walker, occasional swimmer, and hopeful author.
