Teaching Biography

My name is Alicia Lochridge. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I worked for the Clark County School District (CCSD) from 2003-2014. During this time, I taught third, second, and first grade. I recently served as Assistant Principal of Triggs Elementary School. I recently relocated to the great state of Kentucky! As an educator and administrator, I aspire to exemplify excellence and promote positive standards to enhance the education of ALL students. It is my philosophy that in order to be an effective teacher, one must be able to empathize and adapt to students' needs. An effective teacher must view students as individuals with interests and styles unique to their lives. I feel that children learn best with a variety of strategies, approaches, and high expectations. Teachers should endeavor to continue learning themselves. This ensures that classrooms are informed, accurate, and well-prepared. It is a great privilege and responsibility to teach. It is my goal to inspire others to teach to provide children with a strong academic foundation and a love of learning.
