Thank you for the opportunity to teach your children! It is such a privilege to be a part of these little one's growth. I began teaching in IL in 2nd grade, then 1st, then Kindergarten. After having my first boy, I began substitute teaching at a small church preschool and found such joy and excitement working with 3-5 year olds! When our family moved to CO in 2014, I taught 4 year olds at Primrose. In 2015, I found Holy Trinity Preschool and instantly knew I would love working in this smaller atmosphere. My older son, Paulie, attends Moody Elementary, while my younger son, Jimmy is in the Bumblebee classroom here at HTP. I've been married to my sweet husband, Paul, for 13 years. Our family loves hiking here in CO and mostly just that we don't freeze our noses off for 6 months of the year (like we did in IL).

I find it such a privilege to be in my fourth year at Holy Trinity. I have a BS. in Nutrition from CSU and an Early Childhood Education certificate. I have been teaching for a total of 8 years. I find the three year old classroom to be a great fit for me. The kids are eager to learn, but also ready to tell you everything they know. It keeps you on your toes and also can provide comic relief. I am honored to be part of such a great team that all have such passion for kids. I also have a wonderful husband and 3 boys at home.

Cassi Chierchie has been with holy trinity for 1 year. She has her BA in English from Metropolitan State University, and has a vibrant personality and an artistic technique to teaching.
This is my first year being a teacher aid at Holy Trinity, but I have been here for 4 years. I am the mother of 2 boys and both went to school here. My youngest left for kindergarten and I didn't want to leave this wonderful place.
I have been teaching children, Preschool through Kindergarten for more than half my life. I truly love working with young children. And Pre-K, that year before Kindergarten, has always been my passion. So much goes on during this time. I thoroughly enjoy, and appreciate the importance of contributing to children’s lives as they grow and develop into successful, happy, life-long learners.
I have degrees in Child Development and Early Childhood Education, but just as I want to instill a love of learning in my students, I too take pride in continually learning new ideas. I appreciate the knowledge that abounds here at Holy Trinity and am grateful to be a part of this wonderful program.
I am married with 2 grown daughters, whom lucky for me, both call Colorado home. My oldest, is finishing a Masters Degree in Music Therapy and my youngest works as a Bilingual Teacher Recruiter for Denver Public Schools. Both have a high regard for education.
Hi! I am Shelly Gray and I am so excited to be a preschool teacher here at Holy Trinity Preschool. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver in the spring of 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts and a Certification in teaching Early Childhood Education. While I was in College I ran a 'Before and After' school program at Columbine Hills Elementary School and taught Preschool at the Goodson South Suburban Recreation Center. After graduating from Metro I worked as a Preschool teacher at the Auraria Campus Child Care Center. From there I moved to the Cherry Creek School District where I taught preschool at Walnut Hills Elementary School. I then had my beautiful daughter Carlee in June of 1998 and decided to be a stay at home mom. Her wonderful brother Ethan came along in July of 2001. I stayed home with my children until this past school year (2009-2010) when I took a job at Runyon Elementary school in Littleton as a Paraprofessional ( teachers aid ) for first and second grade. Now I am here at Holy Trinity and looking forward to being back in preschool where I feel my true calling is. I did also want to mention that I have been married to my terrific husband Troy for almost 15 years.

I am thrilled to be a new member of Holy Trinity Preschool. I have a degree in Child Development and Family Relationships from CSU. I also have an ECE license through the state of Colorado. In my early teaching experiences, I taught in early childhood special education and infant programs. For the last 15 years, I have been teaching either Junior Kindergarten or Kindergarten. In my classroom I nurture community and cooperative learning, empowering children to see that they can foster their own success as well as the success of their peers.
My strengths lie in developing and nurturing one-on-one relationships with my students and facilitating learning opportunities that encourage them to take risks and challenge one another.
I have three children. My daughter Erin recently got married and is working on her masters in Public Health. Chris is in the Air Force and Sean is at CSU studying Environmental Health and Food Safety. I enjoy yoga, reading, gardening and hiking with my dog, Bella.
