Welcome to Mrs. Triezenberg's Class! 

Meet the Teacher

Hello and welcome to fifth grade! I am very excited to be teaching in my sixth year here at St. Christopher School. I received a B.A. in Education with a content focus in English from St. Louis University. I have sought out continuing education courses to help me grow professionally. As a graduate of St. Christopher, this school has held a special place in my heart since I was a child. I am always impressed by the strength and determination of our parents, students, and staff to keep St. Chris growing.
