Mrs. Lodato has a background in science and Spanish from Colorado State University, and she studied early childhood education at the University of Northern Colorado. Prior to moving to Fort Collins, she and her husband Michael owned bagel shops and coffee houses throughout Western Colorado. In 2010 they saw a need for Catholic education on the Western slope and helped start a Catholic school where three of her children attended. Her love of cooking and passion for teaching inspired a cooking school for young kids. They learned cooking around the world, incorporating geography and culture into each lesson.
Mrs. Lodato enjoys finding creative ways to make learning fun. She feels blessed to have three of her six children at Saint Joseph Catholic School where they are receiving a wonderful Catholic education, in a positive and stimulating environment.
