Mr. Holscher loves listening to country music, 80’s metal/rock/glam rock, anything 90’s, and everything in between.  His interests outside of school include hiking, fishing, power lifting, running, reading mystery novels, and spending time with his family and friends.  Although Mr. Holscher is a physical education teacher, he still manages to support his students in all areas of education (given his classroom background) by providing as many cross-curricular experiences as possible.

Ms. Latisha Robertson, our ESL teacher, loves being a part of the talented and dedicated resource team at Trevvett Elementary. Mrs. Robertson’s classroom learning environment promotes fun, growth, and a sense of family. She was inspired by her 12th grade English teacher, Ms. Copeland to pursue teaching and implement the same intimate atmosphere in her classroom. Her students know they are important, and her goal is to make sure ALL students feel loved around her. Building positive relationships with students, parents, and staff has always been significant to her. You can always find Mrs. Robertson around the building giving out lots of hugs and smiles! 😊 Mrs. Robertson is a graduate of Old Dominion University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. She was a classroom teacher for 8 years. She has taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade in Petersburg and Henrico County. In 2017, she received her endorsement for English as a Second Language and joined the Trevvett family. Mrs. Robertson was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and grew up in a military family. She has lived in Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Kansas. Currently, she lives in Chesterfield County with her husband, Ray and their two children, Rayshaun and Makenzi. She enjoys traveling, watching romantic comedies, reading, and spending quality time with her family. She is a HUGE Washington Redskins fan; however, nothing compares to the love she has for her favorite athlete-Rayshaun!

We are very happy about some exciting new adventures in Trevvett’s ART room this year. We will be enjoying some new programs, clubs, and festivals and showcasing of student art work throughout the year. First off we are excited about upcoming glass displays that will be installed later on this year which will allow us to safely showcase our student 3D art work.  Starting this year we will be creating an art club that will extend the creative experiences of our wonderful young artists here at Trevvett. In addition we will be having an arts festival during a PTA night to allow parents and family to recognize their child’s work in a fun, social way that brings community together in support of the art program. The young artists at Trevvett will be exploring many fun multicultural, historical, tactile art projects though the school year. Some of these projects will be African masks from the culture of Dan, Native American dream catchers of the Sioux nation, various headdresses from many different cultures, Mexican folk art, Aboriginal painting, Greek and Roman regalia, ceramics and architecture, and many hands on 3D sculptural projects.

Many of the artists at Trevvett had art work that was picked and selected to go to many shows last year like the Black History Month, Suntrust show, Central Office show, School Board show, Youth Art Month Show, Lewis Ginter show, VCU show, and the countywide Arts Festival at Hermitage High school. These same opportunities will be here this year and we are excited to see what creative works will appear in them. We are so excited to get this school year started and spread our creative wings.  We hope to see many families during our shows and festivals.  Please come on out and support your children and our wonderful students when you can at these events. It will mean a lot to the students.
