"Mrs. Lobeck understands boys and their need to play and move!"

“She is the kindest, sweetest teacher in the world.”

Mrs. Jane Lobeck-Kindergarten

Mrs. Lobeck discovered her love for teaching through the prompting of her mother. Upon graduating from Millersville University, she taught for the Donegal School District. After a number of years there, she took time off from her classroom career to raise her family. As her children grew, Mrs. Lobeck remained active in teaching through Sacred Heart Church, as a preschool Catechism teacher and mentoring home schooled children and their parents. Mrs. Lobeck came back into the classroom as a long term substitute before taking on the Kindergarten classroom full time. She has been a part of the Sacred Heart community since 1989. She believes the best part of teaching at Sacred Heart is the vibrant community.
