    As a lifelong resident of New Jersey, 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, Mr. Lewis has put students first, created people-centered work
    environments, protected teachers’ instructional time, and facilitated innovation through
    job-embedded professional development.

    Mr. Lewis’s first experience working with children was coaching youth ice hockey, which
    he continues to do to this day. Mr. 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, Mr. 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 Mr. 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, Mr. Lewis earned Bachelor’s degrees in
    Elementary Education and History. He played ice hockey for the Profs, and enjoyed
    spending time in Rowan’s then new science building, the government archives section
    of the library, and the planetarium. Mr. Lewis earned a Master’s degree from Walden
    University in Education, specializing in elementary mathematics and literacy. He is
    currently a doctoral candidate at Walden University, specializing in educational

    Mr. 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 Mr. Lewis and his daughter
    enjoying their time as goaltenders at Hollydell Ice Arena. The Lewis family enjoys
    vacations to Disney World, reading, exploring nature, and playing board games.

    Mr. 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 provides leadership to
    all district employees, monitors the use and status of all district property, and is the
    steward of a multimillion dollar school budget partially comprised of the community’s
    hard-earned tax dollars.
