Chris Sorensen came to her and offered her a job and asked her how many years she thought she might work, Lori said “Oh, maybe five years”. Lori takes time to teach the Kindergarten how to cross the street. Through the years as she raised her own children she would have them come and help her clean the school, then when they were old enough were also employed as student sweepers in the school.
