Hello, My name is Linda Lofgren and I am a 7th grade English Teacher. This is my first year at BMS, but this will be my 31st year of teaching. I spent 29 years at Sequoia Union Elementary School in Lemon Cove, CA a K-8 school teaching First grade my first four years and then the rest teaching Jr. High English. Obviously, my passion is with junior high students and teaching English.
I grew up in Exeter, CA graduating from high school in 1980. I attended COS for two years and then moved on to Cal State University Long Beach to receive my BA and teaching credential. I moved back to Exeter and began my teaching career in Lemon Cove. I furthered my college education with a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Chapman University in 2002.
My interests outside of teaching would be traveling, tennis, and watching the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Been a fan since I was 6 years old.) I own a home in Exeter which I share with my 3 cats (Racquet, Love, & McEnroe) and my dog Jackson.
As an educator I like to challenge students to grow to their full potential in a secure, caring, and engaging learning environment. I am looking forward to a great year here at BMS.
