My name is Krystal Trinkler and it is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the Dean of Soaring Heights PK-8. I have been working as a counselor and with educators for the past 15 years. I attended California State University, Stanislaus where I earned my Bachelor’s in Psychology and Master’s in School Counseling. In addition, I completed my Master’s in Educational Leadership with Principal Licensure from the University of Colorado, Denver. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Education Leadership for Educational Equity at the University of Colorado, Denver.
For the past 7 years, I have served as the School Counselor at Red Hawk Elementary. Prior to joining St. Vrain Valley School District, I was a School Counselor at Farmdale Elementary School in Merced, CA as well as a Post-Secondary Options Coach for Mapleton Public Schools in Denver, CO. My family and I moved to Erie in 2013 and instantly felt connected to the small town feel and wonderful people we met. I am excited to continue working with the growing Erie community.
