Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Trinity Lutheran Church and Schools!


Mrs. Mikolajczyk

Mrs. Mikolajczyk earned her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with certification in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second or Other Language) from Northwest University in Kirkland Washington. Her first five years of teaching were in middle and high school with second language learners from over 19 countries around the world. She worked with students and families from Russia, Poland, France, Mongolia, Iran, Egypt, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and Central and South America. She has a Master Degree in Education and nineteen years of classroom teaching experience. Mrs. Mikolajczyk develops children into eager, capable learners. Mrs. Mikolajczyk worked as a substitute teacher for four years while working on her Master's Degree. It was her subbing experience that convinced her that she really enjoyed teaching kindergarten and first grade. She moved to California in 1998 and started working at Trinity Lutheran School the same year.

She loves working at Trinity Lutheran School with its Christian and strong academic focus.
