A teacher in Youngstown got a surprise Wednesday when she showed up for work.
Tiffany Lewis was named the Youngstown City School District’s 2019 Teacher of the Year.
Lewis is a first-grade teacher at Volney Rogers Elementary School.
Each principal in the district nominates one teacher.
Lewis was chosen from all the candidates for her dedication and compassion.
“I think about them and spend just as much time with them as I do my own girls at home, if not more. Their well being is always on my mind, their happiness, their health, everything,” Lewis said.
Lewis and all the nominees will be honored next month with a dinner at the Tyler History Center.
