I'm Dr. Paula Lockhart, originally from the island of Dominica in the Caribbean. I went to high school in Miami and then college at Ole Miss in Mississippi. I have a bachelor's degree in International Studies and French and a master's degree in French. I lived in France and then Spain and also have a master's degree in International Relations from Instituto de Empresa in Madrid. My doctorate is in Conflict Analysis and Resolution with a focus on human security, international development and global security. I am wholly committed to human development and building up people's spirit through collaboration, knowledge sharing and working together. Before coming to Texas and FBISD, I lived and worked with the federal government and other international governments in Washington DC. I enjoy exploring cultures and communities so I also lived in Nicaragua and have explored much of Latin America and Europe and some of Africa, Asia and the Middle East. I look forward to learning and growing with you and to exploring our World's geography and its history with you.
