I am Rachel Stender and I am thrilled to be teaching at Lester Prairie! I am the new Business Law and Marketing, World History, and Accounting teacher. I am a proud 2015 graduate of Lester Prairie! After high school I attended Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) in Marshall where I graduated in December of 2018. I have a History degree with a 5-12 Social Science License. After graduation I started to substitute teach within the district and directed the Spring Play, Switching Principals.  I will continue to direct plays this school year.  It is a wonderful opportunity to not only have been a student at the school, but now a teacher and director.


Outside of school, I am a Co-Coordinator of the Lester Prairie Ambassador Program. I love photography, being in nature, vacationing to Duluth, and gardening. You can often find me with a good historical book in my hand about World War Two or Minnesota History.  I also have an energetic black lab named Cruze who keeps me busy. Along with Cruze I also have Holstein cattle and hope to grow a larger herd in the future.


I am excited to get to know each and every one of you throughout the school year! Please refer to the tabs on the left for course and contact information. Please let me know if there is anything you need from me!



Go Bulldogs!
