Welcome to Mrs. Lostroh's 5th Grade Page!

About Me
Hello!  My name is Melanie Lostroh.  This year will be my sixth year teaching 5th grade Reading at PRA and my 13th year teaching, overall.  I am a Colorado native and love it here in Broomfield.  My husband, Bob, and I have been married for 15 years and we have two sons, Logan and Ben, who are both students at PRA.  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.  
I absolutely love to read!  I read 11 books this summer... that's about one each week!  My family and I went on many road trips this summer and did lots of camping.   
I am excited to be back to school and back to our normal daily routine.  However, I keep plenty busy during the school year, too.  We tend to spend a lot of time at the ice arena, since both of my children play hockey and their dad coaches their teams.  We love to spend time with our families, too. You can often find us with our cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents.  Family time is very important to me.
Please feel free to contact me if you ever need anything.  See you soon!
Mrs. Lostroh
