Mrs. Roberta Lockwood

My name is Roberta Lockwood.  I have been teaching in a preschool classroom since 2010.  My previous experience was working as a Parent Educator in the Birth to Three Program at St. Anne Grade School Dist. 256 for 7 years.  The Parenting Program instilled my love for education as well as building family relationships between home and school.  I am very passionate about building a student's foundation in learning.  I am very proud to be a teacher at Bradley District 61.

Who is Mrs. Lockwood? 

I am married to Michael Lockwood and we have 4 children in a blended family.  Mike has a son and daughter who are 23 and 27 as well as a granddaughter who is in first grade.  I have identical twin boys who are 23 years old.  Our children are all working full time and have completed continued education:  including trade schools and community college. 

I have a classroom pet fish named Marshall.  At home we have an Australian Tree Frog named Steve Irwin who belongs to my stepdaughter. 

My hobbies include:  Spending time with a busy family, gardening, painting on canvas and finding fun ideas to encourage my students to develop a love for nature and learning.
