Mrs. Sue Lockwood
Your Marsh Mission Teacher

Hi, students!
I am Mrs. Sue and that is a pretend alligator! I am CC's wife and I have been a classroom teacher for eighteen years. We hope students across our great state will follow Marsh Mission.
I know that young people like you are the key to saving our beautiful wetlands! Therefore, I am going to live on a houseboat with CC so that I can report to you the many natural wonders I see and learn about on our adventures along the Louisiana coast. This is your adventure, too, and your teachers and I will guide you! It is going to be great!
