My name is Karen Lofink. I grew up in West Point, Nebraska and attended Concordia College in Seward, Nebraska. At Concordia, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education and also in early childhood.
This is my 17th year of teaching at St. Paul's. I have been teaching 2nd graders for 23 years. I tried 3rd and 4th grade but my love is 2nd graders.
My husband, Mark, is also a teacher, coach and boys athletic director at Canyon High School. We have been blessed with 3 wonderful children. Our oldest daughter, Kaitlyn, just got married this summer. Courtney, my middle child, is a senior at Concordia Chicago. My son, Tyler, is a junior at Canyon High School.
