It is with joy and gratitude that I welcome you to the 2022-23 school year. Moving into my second year with this amazing community brings a sense of contentment knowing what makes Lockwood a wonderful place to work. I work with a staff that creates a sense of belonging and warmth and welcomes each and every student with open arms. I wish each and every one of you a wonderful year of growth, learning, and adventure.
This year, Lockwood will focus on ensuring that student voice is at the center of all we do. Our goal is to create a safe environment where each and every student feels welcome, heard, seen, and cared for. As a staff, we will be starting each day with a morning meeting. This will create a space where students can share about who they are as individuals to create a classroom community where empathy, inclusion, and caring guide each and every member of the school.
This is my 22nd year in education where the past 5 years have been spent in administration. Prior to working for Northshore, I spent time working in Southern CA in Colton Joint Unified and Jurupa Unified school districts. I also spent a year teaching in England. I have three amazing children. Taylor is 27, Christian is 25, and Lizzie is 15. They are my pride and joy and one of the many reasons I am so passionate about education. Know I come to work every day with love in my heart, reason in my mind, and passion in my soul. May this be an amazing year for all!
