      Administrative secretary in the Office of Student Affairs at Delaware Law

      If you're a student with special needs at Delaware Law School, Amy Loeffler is helping to find ways to accommodate those needs and put you on the path to success.

      Loeffler is an administrative secretary in the Office of Student Affairs. One of her chief tasks is working with Susan Goldberg, associate dean for student academic affairs, on tasks associated with students requesting accommodations. For example, she'll seek out note takers who can help a disabled student in class, as well as contact publishers for books in alternative formats. She will also work with the Registrar's Office on behalf of students who require extra time for their exams.

      This May, Loeffler watched student Donald Campbell graduate after assisting him with his exams during Campbell's three-year law school career. Campbell has cerebral palsy, and Loeffler assisted him by typing out his exam essays as he dictated them to her. They grew to be friends. Campbell said he was thankful for the role Loeffler played in his education. "It's hard to find somebody who is easy to work with, and she was," he said.

      In addition, Loeffler plans and directs the school's annual student awards ceremony and helps Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Patrick Johnston coordinate the annual new-student orientation. She provides support to Larasz Moody, director of bar programs, when needed, too.

      Loeffler began working at the law school after graduating high school in 2002. She spent two years in the Registrar's Office before getting married and moving to California, then North Carolina, with her husband Tom, a Marine. They returned to Delaware in 2007, and she returned to the law school – and the Registrar's Office – in 2011. She moved to the Student Affairs Office about three years ago.

      Loeffler said her coworkers are her favorite part of the job, which is one of the biggest reasons why she wanted to return to the law school for employment. "The atmosphere here is great. These guys are like a second family. You can't find that just anywhere else," she said.

      When she's not working, Loeffler enjoys spending time with Tom and their children Jared, 11, and Cheyenne, 8, as well as her brother. She's also an ardent Flyers fan – a loyalty she says she inherited from her father, and she likes to watch the games in person when she can. "I was born with orange and black in my blood," she said.
