Sarah is originally from Baltimore, Maryland but came to Pensacola in 2007 for college.  She is passionate about nature and marine life including the rescue, rehabilitation and conservation of the amazing species that exist.  Among her other joys is her desire for educating young people and watching them discover their own passions in their individual lives.  For the last 5 years, she has been fortunate to travel to Lima, Peru with a local Pensacola ministry to aid in the building of homes in that community.  When she is not working or traveling, any moment spent outdoors or time spent with family is precious and enjoyed.


3rd Grade – Wendy Phillips

B.A. in music studies, Wayland Baptist University
Joined the Trinitas staff in 2005

Mrs. Wendy Phillips is beloved by all students and parents. She is an expert in “feasting,” so the third and seventh grades always anticipate the annual Greek Feast. So gifted is Mrs. Phillips in this area of classical education that she once presented an ACCS workshop entitled, “Thou Shalt Keep the Feast.”   She is also called upon frequently to present teacher training modules for Trinitas and other local classical schools. Mrs. Phillips is so organized she has more binders than students. She has lived in Hawaii and Mexico and has 10 grandbabies, all of whom enjoy Camp GrammaMimi each summer. Her favorite authors are James Herriott, Jane Austin, and Agatha Christie, and her favorite animal is a goat (she used to raise them). Mrs. Phillips is also a concert pianist, which really comes in handy at Trinitas where we love to sing!

Mr. Reed has four children at Trinitas and is committed to classical Christian education. He and his wife Cinnamon were classically homeschooling their children before they ever came to Trinitas, and Trinitas was one of their primary reasons for moving to Pensacola. Mr. Reed understands the Trinitas classroom, the Trinitas standards, the student work load, the grading, and importantly, the expectations and struggles of Trinitas parents.

Mr. Reed is a humanities major who has a passion for literature and language. He is as well-read as our Traditio teachers and actually participates in a book club that some of them attend.  He is multilingual and served as a linguist in the US Navy where he held top security clearance. Mr. Reed has spent time in many different countries which adds layers to the experience he brings to the classroom. His first job after college, and in fact one that he did part-time while still in college, was teaching in a Grammar School.  We welcome you Mr. Reed to the Trinitas staff!
