My name is Melanie C. Lewis. I am a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) where I am pursuing a master's degree in School Administration.

Educational Background
From 1987 to 1991, I attended UNC-CH and worked towards a bachelor's of arts in education. During this time I qualified for membership into Phi Beta Kappa. In 1992, I began working on a master's degree in mathematics education at North Carolina State University (NCSU) on a part-time basis. I completed the program requirements at NCSU and received my diploma in the summer of 1995. While at NCSU, I earned membership into the honor society Phi Kappa Phi.

Teaching Experience
After earning my undergraduate degree in 1991, I began teaching high school mathematics in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. I served as a mathematics teacher at this school for four years. I taught various levels of math, ranging from pre-algebra to Algebra III. Currently, I am teaching undergraduate mathematics classes at UNC-CH.

Extracurricular Duties
During my last two years at Fuquay-Varina High School (FVHS), I served as lead junior class sponsor. My main duty in this position was to organize the junior-senior prom. I had the opportunity to serve on the school's Hospitality Committee. I co-sponsored the Quiz Bowl team, and I coordinated the after school tutorial program.

Career Goals
I have arranged to serve as an administrative intern at Athens Drive High School in Raleigh, NC for the 1996-1997 school year. After completing my internship and my graduate studies in school administration next spring, I plan to work as an assistant principal in a public high school in North Carolina. After working in the schools as a principal, I would like to return to the college environment and serve as a professor of school administration or mathematics education.
