Don't strive to be a maverick in someone else's world. Find your own niche and you will have found your purpose in life"
A passionate and innovative author and educator, Eboné M. Lockett received her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Bachelor of Arts in English from Fairfield University. Never imagining a career in education, she joined the Hartford, CT Teaching Fellows pilot program in 2001 as a way to give back to her community. From the moment she stepped inside the classroom, her passion for teaching and leading was lit, and has never dimmed. Subsequently, Eboné earned a Master of Science degree in Educational Leadership from Central Connecticut State University with a focus on curriculum and instruction. She has taught Secondary English Language Arts for over 19 years, originally in Hartford, CT and for the past 13 years in Charlotte, NC. A three-time-consecutive recipient of the Charlotte Hornets Teacher Innovation Grant, Winner of the Arts and Science Council Cato Excellence in Teaching Award, and creator of Culturally Responsive Curricula, Eboné applies her pedagogy and love for literacy and learning to lead in the classroom, at her school and in her local, national and global communities. Eboné shares her love for learning, cultural diversity and travel with all who are willing to join her on that journey.
