At the end of this month, Tim Lofstrom will join the College of New Caledonia (CNC) as regional principal in Quesnel.
Lofstrom, who is currently the principal of Bouchie Lake Elementary School, begins his new position Feb. 28.
“Tim shares a deep passion for both education and his community,” CNC president Henry Reiser said in a press release. “We’re thrilled that he’s bringing that passion to CNC.”
Lofstrom joins CNC after a long career with School District 28.
He holds a Masters of Arts in Administration and Curriculum and is active in a wide variety of Quesnel community activities, according to the release.
Lofstrom, who was inspired by his brother to become a teacher, began his career with the Prince George School District, where he taught in the kindergarten-to-Grade-7 system for 14 years.
“I love connecting with students to help them solve problems,” he said in the press release. “It’s truly Lofstrom moved to Quesnel in 2006 after accepting an administrative position with School District 28. His career in education shifted once again in 2014 when he became principal of School District 28’s Continuing and Adult Education.
Working with students outside the elementary age was a satisfying experience for Lofstrom, according to the press release.
“I’ve worked with students at a different stage in their life,” he said. “Seeing students enter the final phase of their education and move on to successful lives is very powerful for me.”
Lofstrom says stepping into the role of regional principal at CNC’s Quesnel Campus is the natural next step in the evolution of his career in education.
“I look forward to connecting with the community in this new role to further the great work CNC is already doing to bring educational opportunities to Quesnel,” he said.
