Jovonia Lewis is a nationally certified and licensed professional counselor providing mental health counseling and education. She is a mother determined to advocate for her three sons who attend Durham Public Schools and make sure all marginalized children are seen, affirmed and heard.
I want to serve on the Durham Public School Board of Education because I care about the academic success of all children and the importance of educating and embracing the whole child. I also value the family and community engagement to support the success of whole child. I want to be able to inform and support policy and practices that puts the students’ academic success first while including social, emotional, equitable and restorative practices.
