Meet Our Staff

joleneMeet our Director and Lead Teacher
My name is Jolene Erickson.  I am a disciple at South Shore Trinity.  I have three children, Isaiah (16), Seth (14), and Josephine (12).  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 husband Joel is a CPA.  Joel and I enjoy watching our children play sports, taking care of our chickens, walking our dogs, gardening, and watching football as a family.  My favorite joy in parenting has been reading to my children!
