Starting in Fall 2014, we began asking interested former students to participate in our once-a-semester alumni/ae panels.

So far, our guests have been teachers, lawyers, and policy makers, as well as speech-writers, advocates for the homeless, creative writers and financial advisors.  Panel members have shared their hard-earned wisdom about how to hold onto a writing practice while learning the ins and outs of asset allocation, shared war stories about breaking into the fields of marketing, publishing, and public policy, and confessed how they too at one time were gripped by that senior-year “job-hunting panic.” Current students have found these panels immensely useful.

Chelsea Vasquez

Chelsea Vasquez is an eighth grade English teacher at Rowland Hall, an independent school in Salt Lake City. After graduating from Trinity in 2010, she completed an M.Ed. in English Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Despite her student teaching experience in the high school setting, she fell in love with the energy, honesty, and joy of middle schoolers at her first job at a public school in Wayland, Massachusetts.

Three years in, she and her family needed a change, so they headed out to Utah for what was supposed to be a one-year sabbatical. Chelsea taught skiing at Snowbird while tutoring middle and high school students. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, paddleboarding, and spending time outdoors with her husband and puppy.
