Mr. Lewis is extremely knowledgeable in the history of the United States, however, has a terribly rude and disrespectful attitude. Recently, we took a test in his class, and one of the students sitting in front of me turned around for some reason that I do not know of. Because of that, Mr. Lewis grabbed the tests from our hands and gave us both big zeros. Later on, we went to ask Mr. Lewis about what he saw happen and what we did wrong. His response was that I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU, GET OUT!

He's a great S.S. teacher. Unlike other teachers who just stand in the front of the room and read facts for us to copy, he teaches better than any other teacher I know. Instead of just telling us historic stories, he would, for example, show us a painting of the time and make us use clues to figure out what happened. He just teaches in a way that doesn't just make you know the facts, but ACTUALLY understand why people do what they do and what they're thinking in their own minds. -Anthony Pergola

Great teacher in my opinion, he takes his time to explain and makes sure each student understands. Not every student passes but that's on them! He finds a way to make it fun and easy to learn. He strives in making learning easier and fun for students.

I thought his negative attributes outweighed his positive ones. I got yelled at in his class a couple of times. Some students he really tormented. I remember seeing this dude in the supermarket, he didn't say jack just walked off. Some teachers you just want to be erased from your memory and this guy is one of them.

I like Mr. Lewis. he makes social studies really easy but he just gives us the exit project which we have to hand in the next month. With all the other things that we have to do, giving a person two weeks to read and research all their facts isn't enough. Plus, he barely explained to us what we have to do. My topic for my project hardly has any information from the sites on the library catalog but atleast I get to use other sites

I enjoy participating in his debates, even though everyone else can't comprehend on what he is saying, I find his side of the story which we call American History very interesting.
