Teaching Is Our Passion

Our Teachers Make the World of Difference
We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you a few of our teachers in action and teachers at heart, our lovely volunteer Erin Jackson and Mattie Benford. At the heart of what we do here at Triumph Transitions Institute is to build relationships and then teach. Our staff is totally in love with educating our students. Our Board considers themselves lucky to have such a great group of expert teachers who is driven not by the paycheck, but the desire to see real change in the lives of students who wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity to improve their academic skills and or a chance for a high school diploma. Salute Ms. Gist, our awesome science teacher. We love the way she teaches across the curriculum, adding reading and writing into every lesson that she teaches.

Ms. Gist breaking down those science words so that our students will understand is what she does every lesson.

She comes with a great deal of experience in education and transition. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us.

Salute Erin and Mattie, the best, most faithful volunteers we could ask for. We are really blessed to have two young adults who are interested in making an impact on our students lives. I know our students love them because they can so easily relate to them.

Ms. Robinson couldn’t get enough of teaching. She came out of retirement to work with us.

Salute to Ms. Robinson, she came out of retirement to make sure that our students become strong readers. Make sure you all let her know how much she means to us and our program. Last but not at all least, salute to Mr. Jamersion. He is our math teacher who doubles as our IT guy. With such a small budget a lot of the technology we would want is not in reach, but he seems to always find something comparable to what we are looking for, for half the price and sometimes FREE!!!
