• Welcome to my classroom website

    Hello and welcome to 1LH. My name is Lisa Heiden. This is my first year at Mississippi, but my 13th year of teaching. I have an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and a masters in K-12 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 makes me want all students to develop a life-long love of learning.

    I have two of my own children. My daughter, Hailey, is five and is a kindergartener this year. My son, William, is eight and is excited for second-grade. Our household is excited to have a kindergartener, first-grader (mom), and second-grader! We are busy with all kinds of sports: Ninja, gymnastics, dance, soccer, etc. We love to watch the Vikings 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!
