Dr. Elizabeth (Beth) Lewis is an assistant professor of mathematics at Greensboro College.  She teaches Intermediate Algebra and provides math tutoring for her students as a part of the college-wide student success initiative.

Beth grew up in eastern Tennessee, where she earned her B.A. in mathematics from Maryville College and her M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.  Beth’s mathematical area of research is abstract algebra, where she focused on zero-divisor graphs over commutative rings and published her dissertation work upon completion of her degree. 

Beth worked as a visiting assistant professor of mathematics at UNCG, where she focused her attention on student success and curriculum development.  In particular, she designed and created all learning materials for their Calculus 1 corequisite support course.  Furthermore, she developed learning materials and alternative forms of assessment for Calculus 1 as part of a reimagined curriculum that worked well for online delivery.  Beth was invited to work on the UNC System Digital Course Enhancement Project for Precalculus, which became inspiration for a course redesign of online Precalculus at UNCG.  This work earned Beth the Award for Excellence in Online Education at UNCG.

Beth is actively involved in the missions and ministries of Christ United Methodist Church in Greensboro, where she is a member of the trustees, serves on the ChristKids leadership team, plays in handbell ensembles, leads an adult Sunday school class, and teaches Vacation Bible School.

Beth and her husband Tom, an associate professor of mathematics at UNCG, have three beautiful, smart, and kind daughters – Amy, Kate, and Hailey.  They enjoy family walks around the neighborhood and visits to local parks.  Beth’s favorite getaway is to her extended family’s cabin on the lake in eastern Tennessee, where porch sitting and wakeboarding fill her soul.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
