My name is Mrs. Trina Scanlan. This is my 26th year teaching with Caledonia Public Schools. I hold a Master's Degree in Education and am licensed to teach Kindergarten thru sixth grade, as well as, Middle School Social Studies and French.

My husband Jim and I both grew up in Caledonia. We have 4 children. Logan is our oldest. He and his wife, Katelyn Nelson, reside in MN and have two beautiful daughters, Adelynn and Carolyn. Matison, our second oldest and her husband reside in Iowa.   They also have 2 daughters, Aria and Henrietta.   Meggan is a Registered Nurse at Gundersen Health and is currently part of the midwifery program. She lives here, in Caledonia. Our youngest daughter Kerrigan graduated from Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with her MBA. 

My teaching career has given me experiences at almost every elementary level. I have taught Head Start, first grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, and most recently - Reading and Math Interventionist. This year I am focusing on reading intervention from kindergarten through fifth grade.

Our program has changed quite a bit over the past few years, we now are considered a school wide title program. This allows staff to support all students as needed. I also work with students on a one to one basis with a more intensive approach to teaching reading. It is my goal and the goal of the Reading and Math Intervention Programs to help students become successful within the classroom. If you ever have questions, please feel free to contact me.
