Kindergarten-Beverly Woods


My name is Beverly Woods and I love teaching kindergarten at Lockhart School!

I began my teaching career upon graduating with a degree in Early Childhood Education in 1979.

Here are some important facts concerning my education:

·        Graduated  Union High School in 1975

·        Graduated USC Union in 1977 with a Associate of Arts Degree

·        Graduated USC Columbia in 1979 with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education

·        Graduated Columbia College in 2007 with a Masters Degree in Divergent Learning

If you noticed the huge gap between 1979 and 2007, most of those years I was busy raising my wonderful children, Jessica and Jeremy, who I love both equally with all my heart.  In 2002 I became a grandmother of the most precious, sweet and loving little girl, Makenna.  Makenna brings so much joy and pleasure to my life. 

I don’t have many hobbies, but I do love listening to music, singing and watching nature.  I love living in the country and enjoy the views and sounds that surround my home.  I attend and worship at Philippi Baptist Church.  I believe in a strong faith in Jesus Christ. 

I have received Teacher of the Year twice in previous years, but this recognition is minimal in comparison to the pleasure I feel seeing my students grow and mature as learners.  I hope to continue teaching for many more years to come.  And by the way, did I forget to say I LOVE SCHOOL!

Community Involvement 

I am a volunteer on the Lockhart Schools PTO Board. I currently serve as the treasurer of the board. I am responsible for helping coordinate all PTO fundraisers through the school, helping with the collection of box tops and soup labels, delivering information to the community and school faculty at our quarterly business meetings, and help coordinate the Academic Banquet and Teacher Appreciation luncheon. As a member of the PTO Board, I listen to ideas and concerns from people within our school and community to help us serve our community and school in the best possible way.

I served on the School Improvement Council for the 2012 -2013 school year. I met with the principal, other teachers, and members of the community to help implement programs that would be beneficial to our students at Lockhart and to the community as well.

I am also a Sunday School teacher and an Awana Leader at my church. Through our Awana program, we are able to reach children of all ages and present them with a safe environment, a hot meal and the Bible.
