Kindergarten

"Train up a chid in the way he should go and when he
is old he will not depart from it."  Proverbs 22:6

"At Trinity, I am able to 'train' children both academically AND spiritually on a daily basis. I love teaching Kindergaten because I also learn new things each day."  Kim Michaelsen
