Ms. Lockhart has been in SIS for 2 years but has teaching experience for 35 years. She taught in Quito, Ecuador for 2 years, Kuwait in 4 years and the rest of her career in Nova Scotia, Canada. Ms. Lockhart mostly taught in the elementary school. In total she has been in school for 55 years, she went to school herself as a student for 20 years and became a teacher. Currently Ms.lockhart enjoys being a literacy support teacher for grades 5 and 8. She loves teaching and learning, and loves working with kids and supporting them, she mostly supports improving reading and writing skills. Her favorite subject to teach is writing, because she loves to write. Ms.lockhart loved to write ever since she was in elementary school herself. She enjoys watching the students create interesting and entertaining pieces of literature. Ms.lockhart also has lots of fun reading what they have written. She says students are amazing authors in SIS and truly believes in teamwork and having fun, while the students are learning.
Some of her fondest memory was when she dressed up for Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Read-a-thon. She have found the teachers and parents at SIS so helpful and kind. If she needed anything there was always someone to help or to give her advice. Mr.Art and Ms.Schuppel have supported her and taught her many things such as what the culture is like here in korea. She thinks the food in SIS is great compared to other schools but some days the foods are not that appetizing. Ms.Lockhart says there are so many activities that she could get involved close to the school. Ms.Lockhart swims at the school, three mornings a week, she uses the workout room sometimes for exercise and yoga. And also rides her bike down at the river. Two things she also really enjoys are sports and being healthy. Four years ago she retired from teaching in Nova Scotia, Canada, but continued to teach internationally for another four years. In June of this year she will retire from teaching permanently, which is sad. And she says she will miss it very much, but she is looking forward to having a second career and she is lucky to be healthy enough to do this.
