Ann Wright Strohmeier is Awarded a Grant for Her Book

Former Lower School faculty member Ann Wright Strohmeier was awarded a 2017 Work-In-Progress Grant from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) in the category of Chapter Books/Early Fiction for "The Casebook of Marvelous Madison," a collection of the favorite cases of mouse detective Marvy Madison, detailing his encounters investigating rogue nuts, missing eggs, and a farmyard beauty pageant. The Grants give writers who are working on manuscripts and book projects and not currently under contract opportunities to present their work to acquiring editors hand-selected by SCBWI.

Ann Strohmeier Celebrates Twenty-Five Years at Trinity and Retirement

Ann Strohmeier was recently honored by Trinity for her twenty-five years of service to the School. Thank you, Ann, for all you have given to the School! We with you the best in your retirement.

Ann writes, "Thirty-two years ago (1982) my husband Bill and I, with our four-year old daughter Kristin in hand, first walked through the doors of Trinity. Kristin started Kindergarten that September, and I started teaching at Trinity in 1989 when our son, Stephen, was in second grade. Before that, I had taught for seven years at three different preschools, which brings my entire teaching career to date to thirty-two years as well. Twice thirty-two seems auspicious; a lovely, round number for a career that has been long and extremely rewarding, both professionally and personally.

"And now it is time to go on to other things. What those exactly are, I’m not quite sure, but surely the journey is just as important as the destination. It’s hard to leave a place that has been such a large part of my life, and I will always love teaching. But transitions are always the hardest part, and the future seems very exciting to me."
