Delaware’s 2023 Teacher Of The Year Is Named

A fifth-grade teacher from the Milford School District is Delaware’s 2023 State Teacher of the Year.

Ashley Lockwood of LuLu Ross Elementary School now is Delaware’s nominee for National Teacher of the Year. She will use her position to advocate for historically underserved populations of students.

Lockwood is a Seaford native in her sixth year teaching in the Milford School District, after previously working as a special education teacher in Maryland’s Dorchester County.

According to, “She earned a Sociology degree from the University of Delaware, before getting her Masters in education at Wilmington University.”

“Lockwood has been active in serving underrepresented communities in Kent County, joining the Milford School District’s Equity Action Committee, acting as Chair of local teacher union’s Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee, and is the Kent County Chair for the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League Young Professionals.”

At DETV we would like to congratulate Ashley Lockwood and hopefully she brings home the National Teacher of The Year title
