Lori Blomme, 40, collapsed on Monday while leading a class at Menlo Park Academy, her brother-in-law David Blomme told the Star Tribune. She had taught at at the northeast Minneapolis school for nine years. A cause of death was not immediately known.

Principal Helen Henly told KARE 11 that Blomme was an amazing educator.

Blomme was in good shape and often biked to work, Fox 9 reports. Monday started like any other, students said. "In the beginning of the day, she was the same old Lori -- a great smile on her face," Marshaun Williams, a sophomore in Blomme's class, told Fox 9.

But she told students she felt faint during third hour, and they ran to get help when she collapsed, Fox 9 says. Students were moved into the school gym while paramedics moved Blomme to the hospital. She died before her husband could get to her, Fox 9 says:
