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.
