Meet Our Staff

joleneMeet our Director and Lead Teacher
My name is Jolene Erickson. I have three children, Isaiah, Seth, and Josephine.  All three of my children have been blessed by their preschool experience here at SST. I graduated from Concordia University St. Paul with a degree in education. My dear husband Joel is a CPA for AgriBank.  Joel and I enjoy watching our children play sports, taking care of our goats, Doozie and Coach, and watching football as a family. Creating and making old new again is how I love to spend my time. My favorite joy in parenting has been reading to my children!

My name is Ruth Oczak. I am originally from St. Paul and moved to White Bear Lake 19 years ago. My husband, Steve and I have two boys, Nicolas and Jacob. I love camping, gardening, and spending time with my family! I have been at South Shore Trinity Preschool for 13 years. Every September I am full of excitement as I get to know and teach all the new preschoolers!
