Welcome Lions!  My name is Megan Loftin and I am so excited to be a Lake Creek Lion!  This is my first year in Montgomery ISD so I am new to the Family and Consumer Science family here.  I am an assistant coach for both Volleyball and Softball and I couldn't be more excited.  

 

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors in Sport Management and a minor in Business.  I have an amazing husband, Lance, a two year old daughter Lakelyn, and baby girl Landri on the way.  I also have two dogs, Camo and Daisy.  My family is everything to me.  

 

I am looking forward to a great year at Lake Creek!  Go Lions!
