New staff members to join Salisbury Academy

Jane Current joins Salisbury Academy as the fifth-grade teacher and brings with her 27 years of experience teaching in the Rowan-Salisbury Schools. Current graduated from Catawba College in 1989 with a B.A. in middle grades education and went on to teach at Knox and West Rowan middle schools. Speaking on her years of teaching, Current says that she most cherishes the relationships that she builds with students and the joy she experiences while watching students figure something out for the first time. Current and her husband, Clark, live in Cleveland. They have two sons, Luke, 25, and Thomas, 20. Current enjoys gardening, spending time with family, sporting events and trips to the beach and mountains.

Hannah Lewis has taken on the role of foreign language teacher for Salisbury Academy. Lewis is a graduate of Catawba College where she earned a B.S. in business administration and a B.A. in Spanish. While studying at Catawba College, Lewis worked in the student affairs office to tutor students in elementary and intermediate Spanish. After graduating, Lewis went on to manage a dental office. One of her greatest passions is mission work. Lewis recently returned from a mission trip she took with her family to the Dominican Republic. “These trips are always very humbling and a reminder of how blessed we are,” Lewis said. In addition to traveling and experiencing other cultures, Lewis enjoys sports, being outdoors and fishing and kayaking at the lake.
