Mrs. Melissa McCabe, History Teacher

Teaching at Trinity has always been a team effort. One rarely accomplishes anything alone. I have been able to implement my style of teaching with constant and positive support from my colleagues, parents, staff, and administration. The end results of our combined talents show up every day in the students’ accomplishments and will hopefully continue in their life’s journey.
