When speaking of Mr. Locklear, one teacher expressed her gratitude for his excellent leadership.  “I sincerely appreciate Mr. Locklear for helping me to grow as a professional, while also consistently supporting me when I have come to him with behavior, social, or academic matters about students.  He listens to my concerns, and takes them into consideration when making decisions.  Anytime I have asked for help, he has made sure that I receive what I need in order to be successful as a professional and with my students.”
