Welcome to Ms. Lockett's Second Grade Class!
My Education and Professional Background
M.A. in Elementary Education: Northern Arizona University; B.A. in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education: University of Northern Iowa; Coaching Degree- Coached Track and Volleyball. I began teaching in 1992. I have taught Kindergarten and First Grade and love both of them. I am very happy to be in Second Grade. I feel each grade level has given me the experience of knowing where young children have been and where they are going in their learning. I love teaching at Jacobson!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe children learn best in an engaging, supportive, consistent, and motivating environment. It is very important to establish trust and caring between everyone in the classroom where students can develop their self confidence and individual learning style in a safe place. Life skills and Character are a prerequisite to helping children be the best little people they can be and to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of instruction and learning. Setting high, but appropriate standards can help students set goals, learn strategies to achieve them, and share their celebration of success.
