Ms. Tawana Lewis


I was born and raised in New Bern, NC. I graduated from New Bern High School.  I attended Craven Community College receiving an Associates in Early Childhood/Special Education and a Certificate in Early Childhood.  I continued my Education through Liberty University and received my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education Interdiscipinary Studies.

This is my eighth year at HJ MacDonald.  I served as a teacher assistant in the self contained classrooms, In School Suspension Coordinator, first responder, assistant basketball coach, bus driver, self-contained teacher, and now 7th grade inclusion teacher.  I served as New Bern High Schools Marching Band Booster Club secretary from 2013-2016.  I enjoy working with the band, and although my children have graduated from NBH i continue to render my services assisting Mr. Elbing by serving as a leader in concession stand during home games and assisting during competitions.  I am very active in my community supporting youth athletic basketball leagues by keeping the score books.

I love spending time with my family especially traveling to see my sisters out of state.  

I am looking forward to a very successful year and seeing our students grow this school year.  

My motto is:  I am determined to make a difference on PURPOSE.
