–Dianna Hicks (English)

The students and staff at Triad High School make my job enjoyable because for the most part, we all want to be here.

This creates an atmosphere where authentic teaching and learning can occur. –Beth Perry (English)
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” (Dalai Lama) I love everything about Triad! I feel respected and appreciated here. I love the school spirit. I love the Triad staff.

I love math, but what I enjoy most about teaching is making connections with so many young people year after year. I believe each student is unique and talented, valuable and special! I enjoy trying to help each student see their potential, make good choices, and learn from mistakes while I strive to make them all feel loved and appreciated! Various people have commented over the years about how many lives I have touches as a teacher, but the trust is, they have no idea about the enormous impact all of those young people have had on my life. I am truly blessed? So, without a doubt, what I love the most about teaching at THS is making those very important connections with EVERY student that I meet and working with other teachers and staff members in this district who share the same kind of love for young people that I have! –Melissa Taylor (Math)
Triad has a long history of community involvement and pride! It is very refreshing to meet parents who were students at THS years ago or even grandparents that once attended Triad. We also have a large percentage of faculty members who have chosen to dedicate their teaching careers to a community where they were once students. Triad continues to be a community that others relocate to in order to benefit from this amazing school district and once again pass down the pride of Triad to another generation. –Melissa Wiegers (English)
When I was a young man, I worked in various factories as a welder and machinist. I took great pride in my craft and those products I produced. However, not one car frame or valve actuator ever inspired me or caused me to think. In fact, it was not uncommon for me to hit the snooze button. I can’t wait to get here in the morning and get ready to teach. I can’t wait to greet my students and interact with them in the classroom. The pride I take in what happens in my classroom is magnified so much greater than what I had achieved in those various factories. Now, I don’t produce a product, I produce thinkers and the future. I love my job and often comment that it is a job that I get to do and not that I have to do. Who could want for anything more?! –Darrell Butler (History)
I love working at Triad High School first and foremost because of the students. We have an awesome group of students here and it’s my pleasure assisting them throughout their journey through high school. I also enjoy working with parents, and the THS staff is fantastic! –Jeremy Hoback (Guidance)
It would be nearly impossible for me to pick out one individual thing that I love best about working at Triad. I could easily say that it is working with students, my great co-workers, or getting to help people every day. However, while all of those answers do make my job more enjoyable, it is difficult to pick just one of them. Working at Triad is something that I am incredibly grateful for in my life because there are truly so many wonderful things about our school, staff, and community. Some of these wonderful things go unnoticed or unmentioned, but at our school, they happen every day. I truly believe anyone who gets the opportunity to experience Triad in any capacity would walk away a better person. –Kate Brendel (Guidance)
The following quote best captures what I do: “When people care for you they can straighten out your soul.” (Langston Hughes, poet) Everything I do starts with making a connection because that is the most powerful catalyst for change. I love my job and the opportunity it offers me to share a sense of optimism and hope with students, their families and staff. –Bonnie Mitchel (Social Worker)
I enjoy the student’s sense of humor and excitement they bring to the day. –Josh Ackerman (Assistant Principal)
What I love most about Triad High School is the palpable energy you feel when you walk into our building. ALWAYS, kids are creating, solving, connecting, striving, and growing. I have never worked with a more dedicated, cohesive, and willing group of adults who go to ANY length to make our kids better and our school consistently the BEST. –Stacy Heuberger (Assistant Principal)
I like to see students engaged in lessons as I walk through the hallways at Triad High School. –Rodney Winslow (Principal)
I love working at Triad because of the people. I have great coworkers, fantastic students, and supportive parents. Not all teachers can say this! –Jessica Hasemann (Science)
–Russ Witzig (PE/Health)
–Liz Meyer (English)
What I love the most about my job is that when I wake up in the morning, I don’t have to go to work each day but I get to go to school! I work with tremendous people! –Kenny Deatherage (Athletic Director)
