About

The mission of Trinity Lutheran School is to assist families of our congregation and our community by providing a high quality, Christ-centered education to equip students for life and eternity.

We offer full-time Christian education for pre-K through 8th grade in a multi-grade setting.

We provide opportunities for children to excel in all areas: academic, music, athletics, technology.

We currently have about 50 students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, as well as 24 preschoolers (ages 3-4 years), with an aftercare program available for our preK until 3:00pm.

We are a member of a nationally recognized family of Christian Education that serves its students with teachers who are qualified, dedicated, caring, and certified by the 5th largest private/parochial school system in the United States–Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod  (WELS).

As of the 2018-2019 school year, we have been members of the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP), a program for free tuition for families who qualify. Please contact us for more details.

Josh Danell, Principal

5-8th Grade Teacher (Mornings)

 I graduated from Martin Luther College (MLC) in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. As a graduate I was assigned to MLC as an Admissions Counselor where I served for two years. There, I traveled to nine WELS high schools, encouraging students to consider MLC to become pastors, teachers, and staff ministers. After two years I was reassigned with my wife, Kelly, to teach 4th-8th grade at Grace Lutheran School in Geneva, NE. We both taught in Geneva for four years until we accepted our Calls to teach here at TLS here in Marinette.

Jessica Desotell

5-8th Grade Teacher (Afternoon)

Jessica Desotell I’m originally from Coleman area Wisconsin, but have lived in central and southern Wisconsin as well. After graduating from MLC, I lived and worked in Japan at an international school for 8 years. I love to try new things and see new places, but that has slowed down a little bit since God has blessed me with a wonderful family of 2 girls, a husband, and quite a few animals with more to come. I’ll be teaching the 5-8 graders Spelling, Science, Art, and Reading.

Liz Broring

2nd-4th Grade Teacher

I graduated from Martin Luther College in December of 2018 with degrees in elementary education and Spanish. Before graduating, I had the opportunity to teach Spanish at Michigan Lutheran Seminary in Saginaw, MI for one school year. Immediately after graduating, I was assigned to teach grades 5-7 here at Trinity in Marinette through the end of the year. I am so excited to continue teaching here at Trinity in the 2-4 grade classroom!
