Hi, my name is Lorena Brink and I am the Language and Literature teacher for 7th and 8th grade. This will be my sixteenth year teaching middle school Language Arts and my sixth year at Loomis Basin Charter School. I absolutely love it because I truly enjoy working with this age group. I attended UC Davis for my Bachelor's degree in English, as well as my teaching credential and my Master's degree in Education. My husband is also a Language Arts teacher at Roseville High and we have two beautiful daughters. Our rambunctious seven-year-old and four-year-old girls fill our days with laughter and adventure.
My Teaching Philosophies
Every kid is capable of learning.
“Failure” is a part of the learning process.
It takes work and perseverance to further develop skills.
In order to create a safe learning environment where kids can take risks, everyone needs to be respected.
