About the Teacher

Colleen Truesdell, AKA Miss T, grew up in northern California in the quaint town of Petaluma. After acquiring her Children Center Permit, she moved to the Phillippines. While in the Phillippines, Miss T. used her preschool background to teach English Second Language kindergarten students to speak English for the DOD school on base. Once she returned to the states, she secured a job at Good Shepherd Lutheran School teaching in the 3's program and then in the 4 year old program. She was a teacher with Good Shepherd for 13 years before moving to San Diego.

Mrs. Truesdell is a member of the Victory congregation. She has been part of the teaching staff since 1995. She taught preschool at Pilgrim, now Victory Christian Academy from 1995-2005. Upon receiving her Bachelor Degree and California Teaching Credential from San Diego State Universiy, she focused on subsequent classes to clear her credential and has held a teaching position in our elementary school ever since. She taught 5th grade for four years and is now our third grade teacher.
