Hello! My name is Heather Rinke.
I am originally from Wheaton,
Minnesota. I attended Alexandria
Technical College for one year in
the Child Care and Education
program. I then continued my
education at Southwest Minnesota State University in
Marshall, Minnesota. I graduated in December 2006
with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I have
spent the last eight years teaching preschool at Sacred
Heart Area School in Staples, Minnesota. In my spare
time I like to spend time with my family and friends.
My favorite part of teaching preschool is being the first
stepping stone in children’s education. I enjoy getting
the opportunity to help each child on an individual basis
and I love to see the light turn on when they have been
struggling. It is great to spend time with each child
getting to know them and their families. I am very
excited to be part of the Lakeview school district!
