Ms. Loy is one of Mead High’s newest math teachers and has been teaching since 1991. “I was really excited to come over to meet the community. The kids have been great so far. Everyone’s friendly, polite, and fun, so it’s been great,” said Loy.

Ms. Loy has two kids. One is 21 years old, and the other is 24–almost 25. Both attended St. Vrain Schools. Keven, who is her youngest, is currently attending the University of Arizona, and her oldest son graduated from the University of Wyoming. Another addition to Ms. Loy’s family is their sweet 13-year-old dog named Moose.

A beginning of year tradition Ms. Loy is including in her classes is giving her students a pocket-sized journal that has a ray on the cover signifying that there is a start, but not an ending.

“Like a ray in geometry, it’s pointing in a certain direction depending on the student’s high school life at the moment,” she said, “but it may change direction depending on the things you’re exposed to in your experience in high school.”

In these books, students have the choice to write down the challenges or goals they have for themselves throughout their high school career. Loy wishes for her students to write in them and hang on to them. Before her students graduate, she wants to have a slice of pizza with them or share a moment where the student talks about their high school life. 

Another idea that Ms. Loy is trying out for the first time is a podcast this year. The overall idea for it is to share the context of her classes for students to access. It’d allow students to go home and share it with their families so they also can be informed of what they’ve been learning. Content would include a variety of coverage spanning between humorous, fun, and geometry content. 

“I wanted to do something that helped us [parents] because I felt that when my kids were in high school, it was so hard to know what was really going on in class.” Ms. Loy was inspired to create her podcast because students “just didn’t share as much, so I wanted the families to be able to know and have a reason to talk to their kids about what’s going on in class.” 

For the podcast, Ms. Loy needs volunteers from any of her classes for support on episodes, recording, audio, editing, and writers to form questions. If your interested, talk to Ms. Loy in room G204.
