Loberg has provided professional development training for St. Louis Park Public Schools staff and many other districts throughout Minnesota as part of her personal consulting practice, specializing in social-emotional learning, engaging instruction, trauma-informed practices, cultural competence, and positive school cultures.
“I am a passionate, proactive champion for children and staff, and I can’t wait to begin serving as interim principal for St. Louis Park High School, a school steeped in the tradition of excellence,” Loberg said.
Superintendent Osei said the District will post the principal position next spring and implement a process to fully engage stakeholders in the selection of the next St. Louis Park High School Principal.
