meet Mrs. Rice

Welcome to First grade in room 201!

My name is Mary Rice.  The children call me Mrs. Rice.  I am so excited to be here at Lake Harriet Lower Community School!  I have been teaching over 30 years.  I have been with Minneapolis Public Schools since 1991.  During my time in Minneapolis I have taught many different grade levels.  I have taught at Wilder MST, Richard Green Central Park, West Central Academy, Pillsbury, and Hale.  I come to Lake Harriet after 14 years at Hale Elementary.

I am married and have 3 adult children.  My husband works at DeLaSalle High School.  He works in the business office and teaches a personal finance class.  My oldest son, Cody, works in Minneapolis doing warehouse and delivery work.  My middle child, Jack, is a social worker for Evolve a private adoption agency here in the cities.   My youngest, Mickey, is a community health education specialist and nutrition major.  She is currently working for Livea and lives in Rochester.   YES! I am an empty nester and enjoying my time reading, biking, gardening, swimming, and relaxing.   

I am looking forward to a great school year.
