School Readiness Teacher
Phone: 507-423-5164 Ext. 1148
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 spent eight years teaching preschool at Sacred Heart Area School in Staples, Minnesota. This is my fifth year teaching School Readiness at Lakeview. 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 looking forward to another awesome year!
