Kelli Dent

My name is Mrs. Kelli Dent.  My husband, Rev. Matthew Dent is the Pastor at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Standish.  We have two children. Jonathan is 17 and is a senior at Standish-Sterling High School.  Natalie is 7 and is in second grade here at Trinity. My husband’s Uncle Doug lives with our family as well.  We have a dog named Lacey and two cats named Reese and Kit Kat.  Our leopard gecko, Yoshi, lives at school as our classroom pet.


I was born and raised in Saginaw County.  After attending Delta College for my first two years of college, I transferred to Concordia University in Ann Arbor.  There I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, my Lutheran Teaching Degree, and my Early Childhood Endorsement.  I continued my studies at Eastern Michigan University in their Masters of Reading Program.  I graduated from there and am a certified Reading Specialist.


While my husband was a seminary student we moved frequently.  I have taught at Lutheran schools in Ann Arbor, Wayne, Warren, and Troy, Michigan, as well as in Fort Wayne, Indiana and Hampton, Iowa.  I love teaching in Lutheran schools!  I feel blessed to be a part of Trinity’s school family.
