|Todd Ball, Principal
I am very excited to be at Loveland High School. LHS has a rich tradition and history of excellence. I am fortunate to be an alumni member of LHS and I have a deep sense of pride in this school. I was also fortunate to coach at Loveland High School in the late 80’s and early 90’s. I will do my very best to continue and strengthen this great school.
My background in education takes me through a twenty-two year journey in the Thompson School District. I started in the district teaching science at Thompson Valley High School and Bill Reed Middle School. I ended up teaching at Bill Reed Middle School for the next 11 years.
I did take a one year leave from Bill Reed to teach at CSU in the Education Department. My duties included teaching classes and supervising student teachers at high schools in the area such as Rocky Mountain, Poudre, Fort Collins and Thompson Valley High Schools. In every step of my journey I truly enjoyed the art of teaching.
At this point in my career an opportunity arose for me to join a group of teacher leaders from the Thompson School District to join a master’s program in educational leadership. At the end of this program I also gained principal licensure. I applied for the assistant principal position at Bill Reed Middle School and began my administrative career. Two years later I became the head principal of Bill Reed Middle School. Eight years later I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to join Loveland High School.
Although locations have changed, I want everyone to know that I love what I do, I enjoy working with people, and I believe in doing my very best to help students be successful.

Today is a gift, I will honor it by fully living in it.”

Hi, my name is Antoinette Morgan, but everyone knows me as Toni. I am new to the Loveland area and school district, but have over 20 years experience working in various school districts.
I truly love being the Athletic Secretary here at Loveland High School, not just because everyone has made me feel so welcome, but also because I love being around and supporting young people as they do all they can to transition into adulthood.
I spend most of my spare time with my husband, watching our 11 year old son play sports. When I can get a break from that, I love to read, watch movies and travel. My real passion is singing, so when I can, I spend time singing with various groups around town. I’m not a very good cook, but I love to bake and I have mastered the art of eating!
I look forward to meeting all of you, and promise to work hard to “BE LOVELAND and BE THE BEST!
