About Mr. Trinkle
First grade t-shirt

This is my eighth year working in Perk Valley and third year at Skippack Elementary. Previously I have worked at South Elementary as a Building Paraprofessional and a 5th, 1st, 3rd, Kindergarten, and 2nd grade teacher. I then moved to Skippack Elementary teaching 1st grade for a year, and now I am back in 2nd grade.

I graduated from Kutztown University with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6), and also have my certification in Middle School Mathematics. I completed my Master's degree in Instructional Technology at Lehigh University.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies include playing the piano and going to concerts of my favorite bands.


Here are some random fun facts about me:

1. I have been to Disney World 7 times.

2. I have been playing the piano for over 20 years.

3. During my time at PV, I have taught every grade now except for 4th grade.

4. I love Wawa coffee.

5. Twelve years ago I went to Los Angeles, California and really want to go back again some time.

6. I have a 9 year-old black lab named Allie. She can be very energetic, but very lazy too.

7. I go to the movies often to see all kinds of movies.

8. Christmas is my favorite holiday! I start listening to Christmas music on November 1st and love watching all the different Christmas movies and shows on TV.

9. I like anything cinnamon scented or flavored.

10. Those who know me well know I like to have a very neat and organized classroom, and do not like germs in my classroom.
