Ms. Kiara Lewis

2022-23 Teacher of the Year

Kiara Lewis graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Sociology and spent several years in the legal field in relation to education. She always knew she wanted to work with children and decided to further her education while working full time. After graduating from South Carolina State University with a Master’s degree in Counselor Education, she moved to Greenville to begin her career as a school counselor.

Ms. Lewis loves traveling and trying new things, spending time with family and friends, and binge-watching a new series. She takes her role as auntie very seriously and loves hanging out with her niece.

Ms. Lewis is excited to begin the 2022-23 school year as the 7th grade counselor, where she plans to strengthen relationships with her students, build a mentor group for female students, collaborate with our teachers and staff, and become more involved with the community.
