My name is Lorri Doan. I am a second grade teacher at Ophir STEAM Academy. This is my seventh year teaching second grade. I taught fourth grade for eight years and fifth grade for two years. My first four years of teaching were at Foresthill Elementary School. It has been such an honor to work in the Loomis Union School District. Second grade is an exciting grade to teach; so much enthusiasm and compassion!
I attended Sierra College and graduated from Chico State, majoring in Liberal Studies. After college I taught preschool and lived in different areas. One of my experiences was teaching in Jamaica. I taught three to six year olds for three years. When I returned, I moved on to receive my teaching credential from National University. I continue my education through workshops, seminars, and a variety of teacher trainings. This is an evolving profession which offers many rewarding challenges and opportunities for growth.
