Mrs. Lockhart will be working with students whose last name starts with letters A-Gol. and our RELA department. While we will ease Mrs. Lockhart into things here at Woodcreek, please take time to welcome this ELITE person into our boat…We’ve given her an oar and she is ready to jump in a row the boat with us!

From Mrs. Lockhart:

I am so excited and honored to serve as an Assistant Principal at Woodcreek Middle School! I am a proud graduate of Humble ISD where I attended Creekwood Middle School and Kingwood High School. I went on to get my degrees in education and leadership from the University of Texas at Austin and UT Tyler. This is my 10th year in education where I have served in many roles that include Language Arts teacher, Reading Specialist, Testing Coordinator, Literacy Instructional Coach, Behavior Specialist, and now as an administrator of our amazing school.

I am so grateful to be a part of this ELITE community of students, educators, and parents, and I’m looking forward to a great school year!

Go Lions!
