Stacy Gehrke | Kindergarten

Faculty

Stacy Gehrke joined the Trinity Family in January 2003. Stacy Graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin in 2002 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Administration. She was called to the Trinity Family to serve as Child Care director and quickly took on more roles including preschool teacher (for 14 years), yearbook advisor, and spent some time working with the youth group. While Child Care director Stacy focused on making it a center rather than wrap around care and extended services to include Infant and Toddler care. After the birth of her first child in 2010, Stacy stepped down as director and focused on teaching. In 2012 Stacy graduated with her Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University Wisconsin, where she focused on the importance on keeping play in the classroom. She has served on the South Wisconsin District Early Childhood team for six years, two of them as director. In 2017 Stacy moved from teaching preschool at Trinity to Kindergarten and that is where God is using her currently and she continues to focus on meeting high academic needs with appropriate approaches for young children through free play, game play, and hands on centers (or guided play). She enjoys being with her family (husband Jason, daughters Emmaline and Annabel), crafting, online scrapbooking, and being outside in God’s creation.
