Mrs. Gina Lofgren

I started teaching at Glen Crest in 2007 as a reading specialist.  I then taught sixth grade literacy for about 10 years and am now back to my role as a reading specialist.

After graduating with undergraduate majors in education and English, I taught in a variety positions including fourth grade, eighth grade, and pre-kindergarten. During this time, I obtained a Master of Education Degree, specializing in writing. Later, I returned to graduate school for K-12 Reading Specialist Certification. I also was fortunate enough to spend some time away from full-time employment to focus on raising my three daughters, allowing me to gain a different perspective on education, schools, and children.

I love being around the energy of middle schoolers and enjoy planning ways to help their love and knowledge of literacy to flourish.
