Dr. John Lockhart is an Assistant Professor in the College of Education at Pacific University, supporting new teachers in developing culturally responsive practices and teaching science to all students. His research has focused on difficulties new teachers from dominant backgrounds experienced as they learned to teach in urban high schools, particularly how their own schooling biographies influenced their understandings of their new situations.
A former science teacher, John's scholarly interests include science teaching and learning; the impact of society and culture on schools, teachers, students, and the learning process; and teaching as an artistic craft. He is a master at facilitating challenging conversations about race and equity in schools and supporting schools and districts in thinking through their next steps in creating more culturally responsive teaching programs.
