Please Welcome our New Staff!

We are very excited to welcome, four new staff members and a student teacher into our Trinity family. Please take the time to say hello when you see them next week.

Lesley Wenzel, Vice Principal Junior High

Lesley comes to us with over 20 years of experience as a teacher. Lesley believes that her best role as a teacher is to bring out a child’s understanding of his or her own identity as a learner and innovator. She is excited about her new adventure at Trinity;  she is most excited about working in a faith community with strong leadership and a passion for meeting diverse student needs in a way that promotes student’s God given gifts and talents.  Please see our previous blog post to learn more about Mrs. Wenzel.
