Early Childhood Education
Tonii Lewis is an assistant project director for Georgia State’s Best Practices initiative at the College of Education & Human Development at Georgia State University.
As an early childhood educator for over 25 years, Lewis has served as a teacher, administrator, mentor and facilitator for peers and new professionals in Early Childhood. Lewis has been a loyal staff member at Georgia State since August 2000 and believes that working with ages birth through five provides many opportunities to help establish strong, developmental foundations for young children.
Through her current work at Best Practices, she believes she can touch the lives of thousands of children because she is able to teach and connect to thousands of the teachers and administrators that are in control of children’s childcare experiences.
All work and no play would make it difficult to work with children, so Lewis’ hobbies keep her busy and fun after work hours. They include reading organizational and art magazines, going to museums, listening to music and arts and crafts. As a native to the state of Georgia, she also enjoys spending time with her New York-native husband, traveling outside the state to share stories about her life as a “Georgia Peach” and hanging out with family.
