About Me...

  Hello! My name is Gina Losacco, and this is my eleventh year teaching at Nelson Prairie. I began teaching third grade at Nelson Prairie in 2006. The following school year, I taught first grade and remained there for eight years. I am very excited about returning to third grade this year and hope to see many familiar faces.  

 

HOW and WHY I BECAME A TEACHER

      As far back as I can remember, I have always enjoyed being around children. While I was growing up, my true desire was to get married and have a family of my own.      
     
When my two older daughters started school, I began to volunteer in New Lenox Schools. Then, when my youngest daughter entered kindergarten, I started babysitting for family and friends. 
     After babysitting for a number of years, my husband suggested that I go back to school and become a teacher. He knew how much I enjoyed caring for and being around children. 
     While I was going to school, I entered the workforce and became a teacher aide for New Lenox School District. It was not an easy task to juggle school work and housework while raising a family, but it was worth it. I love children, and I love what I do.
