About Our Staff

Mrs. Oldre

My name is Mrs. Oldre, I am the Prairie Elementary and Intermediate School Library Media Specialist. I feel fortunate to be able to share my ENTHUSIASTIC love of reading with all students and staff at Prairie Elementary school!

I joined the Prairie Elementary staff in 2013 after teaching 19 years for the Hills-Beaver Creek School District. I began my career as a Kindergarten teacher and have also taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, gifted and talented, computer and then moved into Library Media.

 I grew up and graduated from Luverne, MN. I earned my BA degree in Elementary Education from Southwest State University in Marshall, MN and my Masters in Library Media Education from Mankato State University in Mankato, MN.

My husband Kyle and I have two college age boys. I enjoy reading, traveling, golfing, socializing, volunteering, and spending time with my family.
