Our Faculty Make the Difference
"Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system."Sydney Hook, 20th-century philosopher
Our teachers and coaches are masters of their craft who truly know each of their students. Trinity faculty are thoughtful and knowledgeable professionals who care deeply about both content and process. They seek to challenge, inspire, encourage and stretch their students. They look for the “teachable moments” and capitalize on the opportunity to make deep connections and teach for understanding.
Trinity faculty continually research and evaluate curriculum and teaching practices to ensure the quality, relevance and effectiveness of all aspects of their work with students. They develop a “growth mindset” — a willingness to work hard, take risks, learn from mistakes and constantly seek improvement.

Supporting daily PE and 13 sports
Teaching fellows work with the lead teacher to provide more personalized attention to each student. In this lesson, fellow Lori Rey and lead teacher Kimberly Bove guide kindergarteners through strategies for adding a set of three numbers. Together, the teachers can support the entire class and focus their attention when needed.
Director of Athletics & PE
Coach Hendricks became Trinity’s Director of Athletics and Physical Education in summer of 2020. He joined the Trinity family in 2013 and has served a variety of roles, including PE Teacher, PE Coordinator, Assistant Athletic Director, and coach for the volleyball, basketball and baseball teams.
Trinity faculty members are part of an active learning community who attend workshops across the country to learn from top researchers and thinkers in numerous fields. On campus, we arrange for nationally recognized experts to coach us on improving our craft. We travel internationally to study the best practices in the world. We also work collaboratively with colleagues, from researchers at the nearby University of Texas to top national consultants.
