Star Room

Chelsea French

Chelsea is a Vermonter, born and raised. Growing up in Southern Vermont, Chelsea spent most of her life exploring the outdoors. Chelsea knew she wanted to be a teacher for the majority of her life and was highly influenced by the educators that came to be a part of her story throughout her own education. Chelsea went to St. Michael’s College and graduated in May 2018 with a B.A. in Elementary Education and Psychology. Chelsea is working on getting her Early Childhood Education endorsement at St. Michael’s College. During her time at St. Michael’s College, she had the opportunity to work at their on campus Early Learning Center with children ages infancy to preschool. She spent all 4 years, as well as the summer between her junior and senior year working there. If she was not in class, you could find her there! These 4 years were a great learning experience for Chelsea and opened her eyes to the idea that Early Childhood Education could be a path she wants to take. She loves working with children to foster their creativity and learn about life through experiencing it. Chelsea strongly believes in having an open communication system between student and teacher, as well as parent and teacher. Something that she has had the privilege of is building strong relationships with the students and families that have crossed paths with her. Chelsea is looking forward to continuing her time at Trinity Children’s Center, while advancing her work with children on exploration and creativity! In Chelsea’s free time she loves to cook, listen to live music, and experience new and different places.

Lauren Martin

Lauren Martin graduated from Saint Michael’s College in 2010 with a B.A. in Elementary Education and American Studies. Upon graduation, Lauren obtained a Vermont Teaching License in Elementary Education and recently added her Early Childhood Education endorsement. Lauren worked in an infant-toddler room at a local Vermont child care facility for two years before finding her current home at Trinity where she has been for the last eight years.  Lauren’s teaching philosophy focuses on creating a child-based learning environment that provides students with material that connects to their self-interests. She believes that education is a communal act that should encompass the Gradual Release of Responsibility idea, a concept that encourages children to develop self-worth and begin to take responsibility for their own learning. During her ten years of working within Early Education, Lauren has witnessed the benefit of working with parents and community support in order to build a foundation for successful learning and she is excited for this year’s new adventures.

Teaching Assistant

Evie Crady-King

Evie was once a Rainbow Room friend herself. In 2018, after spending a year as an au pair in the Netherlands, Evie returned to Trinity as a full time employee. She quickly moved to become a Teaching Assistant. Growing up with a learning disability, Evie learned what value there is in programs and teachers that support diverse styles of learning and growth. This inspired her to enter the field of early education so that she could use her understanding of different learning styles to teach children from a unique and accepting lense. In the Spring of 2019, she took a course at UVM focused on developing curriculum designed for all learners. When she is not sharing her enthusiasm and passion at TCC, Evie can be found doing yoga, biking, going to concerts, going to the beach and knitting. She is excited to continue her learning and growth as a Teaching Assistant in the Star Room and with the entire TCC community.
