My name is Mrs. Trina Scanlan. This is my 23rd 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 Goodview, MN and have a beautiful 1 1/2 year old daughter, Adelynn. Matison, our second oldest attends Western Tech for Respiratory Therapy degree. Matison has a 5 year old daughter who attends Caledonia Area Elementary. Meggan is a Registered Nurse at Winona Health. She lives in LaCrescent. Our youngest daughter Kerrigan is a sophomore at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As of this fall Jim and I are empty nesters!
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 appoach to teaching reading. It is my goal and the goal of the Reading Intervention Program to help students become successful within the classroom. If you ever have questions, please feel free to contact me.
