I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! This is my fourth year teaching Kindergarten full-time, and I have been working with children in a variety of settings for many years. I earned my undergraduate in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education with Special Education in December of 2015 from the University of Northern Iowa. I also completed endorsement minors in Reading K-8, Language Arts K-8, and Mathematics K-8. I am currently working on completing my Masters in Early Childhood Studies. My Colorado teaching license endorsement is for Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. In the fall of 2015, I student taught in Kindergarten at Scott Elementary and then the past three school years I taught Kindergarten full-time here as well! It was wonderful :) I grew up in Iowa, and moved to Colorado Springs in June 2015 to student teach and to settle here. Teaching is truly my passion, I love what I do and I hope that is passed on to the children! I am very dedicated to giving your child the best kindergarten experience and look forward to getting to know all of you this school year.
A couple little tidbits about me...In the summer of 2018 I married an incredibly sweet, respectful, and God-fearing man who changed my name! Most students have figured it out, but you may still hear some kiddos and families call me Ms. Bockstahler, but I am now and will forever be Mrs. Loftin! :) In our free-time, Mr. Loftin and I enjoy hiking, traveling, spending time with our families, and making healthy, "real food" meals together.
