Welcome to Mrs. Lostroh's 5th Grade Page!
Hello! My name is Melanie Lostroh. I am the 5th grade Reading teacher at PRA. The 2021-2022 school year will mark my seventh year in this position, however it will be my 15th year as a classroom teacher, overall. I am a Colorado native and love it here in Broomfield. My husband, Bob, and I have been married for 16 years and we have two sons, Logan and Ben, who are both students at PRA (Ben is in 5th grade this year, too!) I completed my bachelor's degree at the University of Colorado, received my teaching certification from Ottawa University, and earned a master's degree in elementary reading and literacy from Walden University.
For fun, I love reading! It’s a bit of a challenge to read much during the school year, so I look forward to the summer when I have more time to sit down with a good book. This summer I started the Anne of Green Gables series. As a family, we take many road trips and camp often. Both of my children are hockey players and their dad coaches their teams, so you will often find us at the ice rink. We love to spend time with our families, too. We usually spend a lot of time with our cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents. Family time is very important to me.
I look forward to meeting and getting to know our newest group of 5th graders and their families soon!
