- 5th Grade
My name is Joseph (Jody) Loughlin and I am a Colorado native, having grown up in the Boulder County region. My passion for teaching developed while attending Metropolitan State College in Denver, where I received my B.A. in History and Elementary Education. I continued my studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I earned my M.A. in Instruction and Curriculum. My goal as a teacher is to create a learning environment that fosters creativity, curiosity and enthusiasm. When I’m not teaching I enjoy spending time at home with my wife and two daughters. I also enjoy being outside on a hiking trail, cheering on the Rockies, Broncos, Buffs, Avalanche, Nuggets, Everton F.C., and the Rapids, playing the drums, or reading a good book. I am honored to be a part of this dedicated staff and community, and look forward to the discovery and learning that will take place in the classroom this year.
