Hello! My name is Mrs. Loschen (rhymes with Russian). I am one of the science teachers at the high school. I am new to formal teaching. I taught an Environmental Science lab as a teaching assistant for a couple of years in college. For two years after graduate school, I worked in St. Louis in quality control at a pharmaceutical company where I was a lab tech, then promoted to a quality scientist. As a scientist, I working in the release group, testing API's that are used in pharmaceuticals. My husband and I moved from Alton, IL to Gainesville where he got a job after he graduated. We love the area and enjoy the numerous outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking, and boating with our 2 adorable pups, Huck and Gaston. I am very excited to begin teaching as I love learning and science!
