• Welcome to my classroom website

    Hello and welcome to 1LH. My name is Lisa Heiden. I love teaching at Mississippi Elementary, the home of the Otters! I have an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and a masters degree in Kindergarten through 12th grade education. I have taught all over the country and I am excited to be back teaching in Anoka Hennepin, the district I grew up in. I love teaching the early learning grades and have spent almost all of my career in either Kindergarten or first-grade. I love watching students develop reading strategies and enjoy all sorts of hands-on learning experiences. I love watching my students gain skills for success. My love for teaching and learning makes me want all students to develop the same life-long love of learning.

    I have two of my own children. My daughter, Hailey, is six and is a first-grader herself this year. My son, William, is nine and is excited for third-grade. Our household is excited to have a first-grader, first-grade teacher (mom), and a third-grader! We are busy with all kinds of sports: ninja, gymnastics, dance, soccer, basketball, and flag football. We love to watch the Vikings and the Gophers and the cabin is our happy place.

    Thank you for being invested in your child's education and partnering together! I am excited to work with your child this year!
