Degrees and Certifications:
That sweet, sweet, Bachelor's of English from NCSU.
Mr. Andrew Lockwood
I have worked at SSS for 2 years now, and there is nothing I enjoy more than being a Spartan.
To my future students: I look forward to working with you whether you are one of my English III students, nearing the finish line, or one of my Honors English I/AVID I students, just beginning your journey through highschool. I can't wait to meet you in the fall and get to know you better. In the mean time, enjoy the last few days of summer vacation!
A little about my background:
I worked in the construction industry for just over 15 years, the last 6 of which I spent working full time and doing school work to earn my teaching degree. I began my post secondary educational journey at Wake Technical Community College before transferring to North Carolina State University and earning my Bachelor's Degree in English with a concentration in teaching. Last year I taught English III: American Literature, while this year I taught both English III and Honors English I/AVID I. I am excited to continue teaching both of them in the fall of 2017.
Now it gets personal!
I have been married to my lovely wife, Kira, for almost 14 years, and we have lived in Archer Lodge for nearly 13 of them. We don't have any human kids, but this summer we plan on getting a female goat for the two males we already have, so we may have goat kids by next year. I know, goats! Interesting, right? What may interest you more is that they are the fainting kind. Don't know what fainting goats are? Here's a video for a good laugh, and here is a video to learn more about them. We will also be expanding our "farm" over the summer by getting some chickens, so if you ever need eggs... then just go to the store and get them, because we're not getting that many and they won't lay enough for more than just us (sorry, not sorry). But I will show pics of them if you ask me nicely. So you live on farm, Mr. Lockwood? Well, not really. But when you have as many animals as we do, it sure feels like a farm (2 goats, 4 dogs, 2 cats, a snake, soon to be 2-3 chickens). Did I mention I also teach English, cause yeah, I teach English.
All of these are subject to change at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year in the fall.
