Ryan Rush

Principal, Grades 3-4

I was born in Wayne, Michigan (suburb of Detroit). I had previously served the Lord for two years at St. Croix Lutheran Academy while teaching World History and Geography. Some of my hobbies are watching, coaching or playing sports, listening to music, hanging with friends and traveling. Since I have been in Michigan my whole life my favorite sports teams include the Detroit Lions and Tigers but my team I cheer on the most are the Michigan Wolverine football and basketball teams! I have enjoyed my time at Holy Trinity serving the Lord as principal and teacher!

Caitlin Bare

Grades 1-2

Caitlin has been a 1st and 2nd grade teacher at Holy Trinity for 3 years now, but before that she worked at Holy Trinity as the lead preschool teacher for 9 years. Caitlin graduated from Martin Luther College with her Bachelors in Education. During her high school and college years she taught Sunday school to 3-5 year olds. Caitlin was born in San Antonio, TX, but grew up in Lake Geneva, WI. Her love for different types of cactus keep her a Texan at heart. She enjoys going on walks with her husband Andy and their children Shawn, Evan and Selena. She also enjoys volleyball, jogging, painting and drawing when she finds free time in the day. The moment Caitlin knew she wanted to be a teacher was the first time she stepped into the preschool room as a volunteering high schooler. As she was asking a child about his picture the 3 year old was able to confidently explain in great detail that the picture displayed how Jesus died on the cross for him. From that moment on she knew she wanted to be a teacher who could give the same passion and confidence as that teacher gave that child.

Hola! My name is Mrs. Zeitler, and I teach 5th and 6th grade at Holy Trinity!  Our upper grades are departmentalized, which means that I spend the mornings teaching my fifth and sixth graders, and I spend my afternoons teaching both Spanish and English to grades 3-8!
