She received her undergraduate degree from Auburn and UAB and then attended Athens State for education classes. She received her master’s degree from the University of West Alabama and is currently working on her PhD and hopes to continue her work on National Boards this year.
Mrs. Lockhart currently resides with her husband, their two-year-old son, her sister, and her niece. They love to be active and are always in their RV, out in the woods on four-wheelers, or out on the water in a boat.
She is a nutritarian, and while she might not eat meat, she loves to hunt and fish. She loves teaching because she gets to “play with science” every day of her life, and she wants others to love science and question the world around them. She also wants students to reach their full potential in and out of the classroom.
