5th Grade Teacher
Email Mrs. Lufting
I’ve had the pleasure of teaching at Our Lady of the Rosary School for over 9 years. First, as a substitute teacher, then as a full-time instructor for the 1st grade for 7 years and This year I am excited to be teaching 5th grade.
The social and cultural diversity that makes up our student-body has made my job interesting, and the small class size has enabled me to really get to know, not only my students, but their extended families as well.
I myself am the result of a bi-cultural upbringing, since I was born in Indonesia, moved to the Netherlands, and then immigrated with my family to the United States, when I was in 5thgrade. For some strange reason I feel that I have come “full circle” to my starting point in this magnificent country, which I now call my home.
Since that point in time I graduated with a B.A., received my teaching credential from San Francisco State, married a wonderful man, and we were blessed with two amazing daughters, who are so different that it’s difficult to conceive they came from the same parents.
Besides my family, I love my pets, I enjoy reading, watching a good mystery, cooking, drawing, and traveling abroad as often as possible.
