Hello ! My name is Angela Lockhart and this is my 24th year of teaching students with special needs. I grew up in Thomaston, Georgia and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgia Southwestern State University in 1986 and a Master of Education degree from Columbus State University in 2011. I began my teaching career at Twin Cedars Youth Services, later relocating to Heard County School System where I taught five years before moving to Troup County School System. I currently teach in the Self- Contained setting at Gardner Newman Middle School.
