My name is Kendra Merrell and I am the proud principal at Bob Lewis Elementary School. I have worked as a first grade teacher and a third grade teacher as well as an academic specialist in the areas of science and writing. I actually started my administrative career right here at Lewis Elementary! I was the administrative intern for the campus for the 2007-2008 school year.

Welcome to an exciting school year at Bob Lewis Elementary!
My name is Lisa Gallego and I am the Lewis Vice Principal. It is such a pleasure to attend work each day at Lewis. We are glad your child is attending our campus.
My educational career has allowed me to serve as Primary Teacher, Intermediate Teacher, Math Support Specialist and Vice Principal. Daily, I work closely with staff, students, parents and the Lewis Community to strive for a successful school year. When I am not part of the ‘Lewis Family”, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and my four-legged pets.
The Bob Lewis motto is BLE- Is the place to be! The importance of this motto is the realization that it takes students, staff, and parents collaborating, together as a team, to have a learning - filled school year. Staff, parents, and students will work through the year, together, in order to accomplish this task.
We are very excited about the learning that your child will experience over the next few months. Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at 210-397-2650. We look forward to your partnership this school year.

Show Your Leopard Pride,

Lisa Gallego
Lewis, Vice Principal
