WELCOME TO MRS. LOFINK'S WEBPAGE!!
I teach Social Studies and Reading for the Puma team, as well as ELL for Pumas and Bearcats! I have been teaching for nearly 17 years. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Chadron State College. I love spending time with my family. I am frequently attending my three boys' activities. My husband, Terry, is a farmer and we have three boys. Our oldest son, Beau, is starting his third year at Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado majoring in Business and playing baseball. Our middle son, Braden, is a senior and plays football, basketball, & baseball. Our youngest son, Blake, is a freshman and also plays football, basketball, & baseball. When I'm not at one of my sons activities I am searching for ways to make learning fun and interesting. I am looking forward to a GREAT year.
6th Grade has virtually brand new World History textbooks. Your child will have their own textbook that he/she is responsible for the entire year. Typically this textbook will remain in the classroom; however, when your son/daughter has World History homework or a test to study for, he/she will always be able to take his/her book home.
Any student that receives below a 70% on an assignment may make corrections to the assignment or completely redo the assignment to receive a higher grade. I highly recommend your child take advantage of this opportunity!
However, I do not always do this on tests. The reason for this is the students most always have a review sheet to study from the day or two before the test. If a special circumstance should arise, I am more than willing to adjust the test retaking policy!
REALLY COOL WEBSITES TO CHECK OUT! SERIOUSLY, THEY'RE AWESOME!!
