Enrichment at STEM includes after-school care, clubs and activities.
Mona Loptien joined the STEM Team when the Elementary School opened in August of 2016 as an Educational Assistant in Kindergarten. She is now the Lead Instructional Aide in the Elementary School. Prior to joining STEM, she ran a general contracting company along with her husband. She has raised two children here in Douglas County.
Her daughter started at STEM in sixth grade. She saw the way that STEM challenged her and helped her find her “people”. The school was a blessing to her and she yearned to give back, first as a parent volunteer and eventually, as a staff member. She shares that it has been a joy to come to work and help teach these amazing young Spartans!
She loves living here in Colorado and spending time outdoors with her family and her two dogs. She enjoys hiking, cooking, baking, gardening and art.
