Welcome to our Classroom Website

    My name is Lori Onstad and this is my fifth year here at Mississippi Elementary in the Kindergarten Readiness classroom—I am thrilled to be here! I began my career teaching preschool at small church preschools in both Rosemount and Minneapolis. After seven years I took a break from teaching to stay home with my two daughters. I returned to teaching eight years ago at the School Readiness lab preschool at Coon Rapids High School.


    My husband and I have two daughters; Gracie is a freshman at Augustana University in Sioux Falls and Ally is a junior at Champlin Park.  We are all busy with their activities but we also find time to spend together at our cabin in Backus, Minnesota.  I am an avid reader and runner and am usually training for some kind of event.


    I am so blessed to be here working with Mississippi's littlest students! Stop in sometime and see what kind of fun we're having!


    Here's where you'll find more up to date info on my preschool webpage!
