After his time at Curley, Greg attended Mt. St. Mary’s College where he earned a degree in business. Professionally, he has explored a few different avenues in the business world. In his previous position, Greg was a business tax auditor for the State of Maryland. He has been involved in coaching soccer at the youth level for a number of years. (With a name like Loftus, who is surprised?) He has also done a little traveling, with his trip to Ireland topping the list.
Currently Greg is teaching mathematics at Curley and coaching the JV soccer team. “As a student,” he remarks, “becoming a teacher never crossed my mind, but now that I have had the experience, I wouldn’t do anything else. Being able to coach on top of it is icing on the cake. Teaching has proven to be one of the toughest jobs that I have encountered over the years, but it is also the most rewarding.” This is Greg’s first year teaching. He also is on the board of the Alumni Association and serves as its treasurer.
When reflecting on his Curley days, Greg says: “Both Curley and my parents taught me about persistence and hard work. When I was a student, Curley was more than just showing up to school and taking tests and turning in homework. It was a place with great people that helped me to grow as a student, athlete, and person. I’m glad to be back, and hope that I can help pass these values on to the current Curley students.”
Greg still has a passion for the sport of soccer and spends as much time as he can on the field. He even played in the Alumni Soccer Game on Homecoming Saturday. One of his favorite things is just goofing around with his nieces and nephews (Luke, Joei, Gabriella, Sofia, Carly, Kate, and Ian.) “Being able to watch them grow up and goof around with them along the way is awesome.”
