Welcome!  I am Mrs. Cori McRae, your elementary and middle school principal!

I am married to my handsome husband Josh for 15 years! We have a 13 year old daughter and twin eleven year old boys. We enjoy traveling the state visiting the beautiful state parks, swimming in our pool on the hot summer days, building epic snow forts in the winter.   We have three pets, two Toy Australian Shepherds, Maizie and Tsuki, as well as a one-eyed cat named Uno.  I am a Wish Granter for Make-A-Wish Minnesota and love granting wishes for children battling critical illnesses.


I have been an educator for 18 years. I have taught preschool, kindergarten, 5th grade & 6th Grade ELA. I have also been a reading/math interventionist, certified gifted & talented teacher, and represented more committees than I can count. 13 of these years have been in the Austin Public School district where my children attend, and my husband is a Tech Integrationist for their elementary schools

Please know we are working diligently to assure our students here at Lyle will have the best experience and receive the support they all need.  We ask for your support in working together to help provide the best learning environment and experience for your child and all Lyle students.

I look forward to getting to know all of you. I am truly excited and humbled to be a Lyle Lion alongside you!
