Addie Lewis is the Manager, Partner Engagement, at PBLWorks. She joined the team in March 2019. Addie is the first point of contact for schools, districts, and other educational leaders who are seeking on-site project-based learning professional development services for their teams. She offers clarity and insight around the services PBLWorks provides to best equip school teams for successful implementation of PBL in their classrooms, and guides them through the contracting process.
Addie is a long-time educator, dedicated to seeing equitable and accessible education for all. She began her career years ago in child care, before transitioning to a formal teaching position after graduating from San Francisco State University with a B.A. in French Literature. During college, she studied abroad, where she taught as an English Teacher Assistant in Paris, France. Since then, she's spent 3 years in the classroom, teaching multiple middle and high school subjects. She's made her way into administration working in positions such as office manager and Director of Admissions and Outreach. Addie knows first hand the care, dedication, and love it takes to teach effectively, and how important resources such as project-based learning are to ensuring deep student learning and meaningful academic growth.
In her spare time, Addie enjoys traveling, reading, practicing yoga and running, as well as spending time with her family (especially her young niece!).
