Heather Lofflin, M.S.E., Curriculum & Teaching


Hello, Everyone! I am Ms. Lofflin, and I am excited to start another school year! 2020 marks the beginning of my 16th year of teaching. I taught reading to grades K-5 for six years, 2nd grade for three years, and this marks my 6th year as a 5th-grade teacher. Not only have I been a teacher at Hillcrest for going on 9 years, but I was also a parent for 10 years before that. As you can imagine, I have strong ties to Hillcrest Elementary!

Be sure to check Hillcrest's Google Sites page regularly for infomation, assignments, schedules, etc. In my class, we will also be utilizing Seesaw often, so please download the app to your phone and/or computer; I will send announcements or messages this way. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, concerns, or something doesn't make sense, or is frustrating. My only goal is to do whatever I can to help students and families be successful this year. Let's get started!
