Mrs. Sandy Erzen, Dean of Students
TMS will be a place where students and staff feel inspired to learn and develop the skills and mindsets of successful, independent and productive citizens.
It feels amazing to be back here at Trimpe Middle School! I graduated from Civic Memorial in 2003. I then earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a middle school endorsement in language arts from SIUE. I received a teaching position in the Alton School district and in 2010, I received my master’s degree in administration from McKendree University. During my 11 years at Alton Middle School, I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Title 1 as well as 6th and 7th grade Language Arts. I also enjoyed coaching their competition cheerleading squad for three years. In 2018, I decided it was time to come back to my hometown to teach and I had a great year teaching 5th grade at Meadowbrook Intermediate.
I am very excited for my second year as the Dean of Students at both TMS and CM! My husband, AJ, and I were both raised up wearing purple and gold and so will our 3 boys (Miles, Hayden, and Cameron)! We love going to the extracurricular activities and continuing to get to know amazing students and families! I look forward to an amazing 2020-2021 school year with all of you! Go Eagles! 🦅
