Ms. Trude

Hello!  My name is Christine Trude and I will be your child's math teacher for the 2021-2022 school year.  This will be my 19th year teaching and my 11th year in 5th grade.  I am so excited for my third FULL year at Central Dauphin School District and my third FULL year at Tri Community Elementary!  

I live nearby in Penbrook with my 16 year old son, Shaun, who will be attending Dauphin County Vo Tech this year as a junior working on his welding certification.  We have a cat and live in a 100+ year old farm house!  I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my nephews), reading, going to local sports events, visiting the beach, hiking and listening to live music.  

This year I am continuing to earn my certification in Teaching English Language Learners so I will also be a student!  My goal this year is to learn more about my Tri Community family, including all of you!  Thank you for entrusting me with your child this school year.  Please reach out with any questions or concerns.  Let's make this school year AMAZING!
