Ms. Lois Balogh
Lois Balogh has been at EXPO Elementary School for 18 of her 20 years with the Saint Paul Public Schools. During those years she’s worked as a paraprofessional in classrooms ranging from Kindergarten through 6th grade. Ms. Balogh earned a bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology from North Park University in Chicago. Prior to coming to EXPO, Lois worked for 10 years in a clinical and research lab in the neurology department at the University of Minnesota Hospitals.
When not at school, Lois enjoys gardening, reading, beading jewelry, and various other creative crafts/arts. She and several former EXPO parents formed a beading collective and hold an annual show and sale. She also enjoys traveling, hiking, and exploring Twin Cities restaurants with her husband.
Born and raised in Canada, Lois now lives close enough to EXPO that she has the shortest commute of any staff member! Her two grown children also attended the school.
Ms. Balogh enjoys working across multiple grade levels; this gives her the opportunity to follow the growth and learning of students over several years and the opportunity to work with so many great teachers at EXPO.
