Biography
As a lifelong resident of New Jersey,  Dr. Al Lewis has a proven track record of principled servant-leadership and bettering the lives of children across South Jersey. Throughout his career in education, Dr. Lewis has put students first, created people-centered work environments, protected teachers’ instructional time, and facilitated innovation through job-embedded professional development. 

Dr. Lewis’s first experience working with children was coaching youth ice hockey, which he continues to do to this day. Dr. Lewis began his career in education as an elementary school teacher in Voorhees Township Schools. From 2013 through 2022, he served as Curriculum Supervisor in Gloucester Township Public Schools. While serving in this role, he worked directly with Board of Education members, teachers, and administrators to build cost-effective programs. He collaborated with authors of national instructional standards to write curricula that aligned with state standards. His efforts  modernized instructional materials, improved teacher practice, and had a significant impact on student achievement.

As a curriculum supervisor, Dr. Lewis led many initiatives, such as creating future-forward, career-ready technology electives. His leadership and expertise were central to modernizing an aging program, training staff in new content and instructional methods, and securing funding that was needed to purchase innovative equipment such as 3D printers and drones. The crowning achievement of Dr. Lewis’s time in Gloucester Township was his creation of a Summer STEAM Camp that served the district’s historically underrepresented students at no cost to the local taxpayers.

A proud alumnus of Rowan University, Dr. Lewis earned Bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education and History. He was a goaltender for the Profs Men's Ice Hockey team, and enjoyed spending time in Rowan’s then new science building, the government archives section of the library, and the planetarium. Dr. Lewis earned a Master’s degree from Walden University in Education, specializing in elementary mathematics and literacy and later his doctoral degree in educational leadership. His dissertation, Elementary Principals' Instructional Support to Teach Science, centered-on instructional leadership practices specific to supporting elementary science teachers.  In 2023, Dr. Lewis was nominated for Rowan University's Community Impact Award for his service to local communities and in 2024, he was nominated for Rowan University's College of Education prestigious Outstanding Achievement Award, as well as the National Association of School Superintendents Excellence in Small School District Leadership Award. 

Dr. Lewis’s primary calling is his family. He lives in Williamstown with his wife and children. The Lewis family is a hockey family, with both Dr. Lewis and his daughter enjoying their time as goaltenders. Dr. Lewis serves as the head coach of the Philadelphia Liberties 14u Women's Ice Hockey Team. The Lewis family enjoys vacations to Disney World, reading, exploring nature, and playing board games.

Dr. Lewis was honored to be named Superintendent of Weymouth Township School District on July 1, 2022. He is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the district and serves as an ad hoc member of the Board of Education. He is the servant-leader of all district employees, monitors the use and status of all district property, and is the faithful steward of a multimillion dollar school budget partially comprised of the community’s hard-earned tax dollars.
