Mr. Andrew Strickland / Principal
Mrs. Kellie Meerstein / Admissions Counselor, Administrative Assistant, and Athletic Director
Mrs. Pam Siudak / Kindergarten
I was raised on a small family farm in Central Wisconsin. I attended Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) and received a Bachelors’ Degree in Elementary Education and Music. I also received a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from CUW. I have served as a child care director/teacher, preschool teacher, Kindergarten, First and Second grade teacher, and school music director in Lutheran schools throughout Wisconsin for 26 years. My husband, Rick, and I have been married for 25 years and have two daughters.
I have often said that the students teach me more than I teach them, you never know what young students will say or do. My favorite thing about teaching is those special ah–ha moments: that moment when a student understands and/or masters a skill they have been working on.
My favorite Bible verse: Proverbs 16:3 “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
Mrs. Robin Paul / 1st and 2nd grade
Greetings! I have been involved with the LCMS Lutheran Ministry ever since I can remember. My earliest memories are of attending Camp Luther as child. I was blessed to work there as a Junior Counselor, Summer Counselor and Full Time Program Director. After Camp Luther, I taught in the Lutheran School System in Green Bay and the surrounding areas.
I am Married to my husband of 19 years and we have 2 amazing teenage children.
I enjoy the outdoors whether it be sitting around a campfire in the Northwoods or laying on the beach smelling the salty air and listening to the waves meet the sand.
I feel very blessed to be a part of the ministry at Green Bay Trinity again!
I have a passion for children and helping them to become their very best both academically and personally. Children are a gift from God. I love when they reach that “ah-ha” moment, when the lesson suddenly “clicks” and you can see their confidence and enthusiasm soar!
My favorite bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Everything happens for a purpose in God’s timing.
May your day be full of blessings!

Miss Robyn Meyer / 5th and 6th grade
Hi! I’m Robyn Meyer and teach mainly 5th and 6th grade here at Trinity. I was born and raised in a small town in Kansas and love to get back to visit! I attended Concordia University Nebraska and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Level Education with concentrations in Math and Social Studies. I received my first call and moved up to Wisconsin! I’m so thankful that God called me to be a teacher and has placed me at Trinity.
Why I like to teach:
I love to teach because of the kids! It’s my goal and the end of each day that the students know they are loved not only by me, but by our Father in heaven. I love helping students reach their full potential and seeing them learn and create new things. Each day is an adventure!
Favorite Bible verse: Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always. Psalm 105:4
