PREWITT, N.M. – Lonnie Gingrich is a first-grade teacher and coach for Baca/Dlo’Ay Azhi Community School and the Prewitt, New Mexico community. He has been a part of the school staff for almost 17 years. Gingrich came from Las Cruces, N.M., to accept the job and started out as a physical education teacher. Now, he is working with first graders in the classroom, virtually these days, and then with K-6 age groups for both basketball and soccer – and loving every minute of it.
