Outside of the classroom, Lohfink is the adviser of the National Honor Society, the assistant Student Council sponsor, and is assisting with the Academic Games. Concerning the unique qualities of SCC, Lohfink asserts, "Teachers at SCC truly get to know their students. We know their names, their faces, their personalities. We support them outside our classrooms, whether they are on an athletic field or court or on a stage. We celebrate their dreams and their futures." She feels extremely blessed that she can share her love of literature in the same building where her love for English was fostered. "Whether it be poetry or prose, great literature needs to be shared! I love exposing my students to literature that can broaden their scope of thinking and encouraging writing that can help them develop talents and skills necessary beyond the Red Room (her classroom)." Mrs. Lohfink lives in LaPlace with her husband Gerard and their children Lily and Liam.
