Mme Elise Lindell

Bonjour! I’m Mme Lindell 

and I will be your Preschool teacher this year!  This will be my 6th year teaching preschool in French, and my 3rd year at LNFI.  It’s going to be an amazing year filled with fun, learning, and adventures! I thought you might to know a little bit more about me.

I am originally from Minnesota, but have lived in Chicago, Colorado, as well as in France!  I have a dog whose name is Ember.  In my free time I love to read, go for bike rides, hike, and play violin.


A few of my favorites:

Color: orange

Season: spring

Food: Thai (I love Thom Kha soup!)

Drink: Water!

Song: Nous sommes tous comme des fleurs

Book: Pete the Cat series

Sport: Cross country skiing


Meet our Teaching Assistant, Mlle Hinschberger

Bonjour! My name is Caitlin and I'm happy to be the Pre-K Teaching Assistant this year. This is my second year at LNFI. I attended the University of Minnesota, Morris, and graduated in 2016 with a degree in English and minor in French. While in college, I studied abroad in Lille, France, and had the opportunity to travel all over Europe. This past year I served as a Reading Corps tutor at an elementary school in Roseville. I'm very excited to begin the school year and meet you all!
