Not many schools can say that their
present staff consists of past graduates, especially at the vice principal
level, but Triple C School can say just that.
As of this month, Jennifer Allen,
class of 1996 and a Caymanian, will be the Triple C School vice principal for
elementary and academics.
Mrs. Allen holds a master’s degree
in teaching, specialising in curriculum and instruction, from Nova Southeastern
University in Florida. She has been teaching for eight years, two of which have
been at Triple C School.
“I am excited to start this new
journey as a vice principal and appreciate all the support that I received in
taking this role from my family, co-workers and friends,” said Mrs. Allen. “I
am honoured to now be a leader in providing the same rich Christian education
that I received when I attended high school here.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at
Triple C School as a student and look forward to providing the same opportunity
to my children and all who will be attending Triple C School this school year
and in the future.”
Robert Lankford, vice principal of
Secondary/Social, stated, “We are proud to have Mrs. Allen join the
administrative team …. Mrs. Allen was previously a first-grade teacher with
administrative qualifications. She now brings to this administrative post the
same energy, enthusiasm and dedication that earned her the respect and
admiration of her students and their parents.”
Also this year, Triple C School
introduces its new curriculum, as well as advanced courses for secondary
students, and a gifted and talented programme for elementary.
“Triple C School takes pride in
offering a solid, well structured, education program from preschool to 12th
grade,” said Mrs. Vanessa Godfrey-Banks, chairman of the school board. “…We
are proud to see one of our own graduates return, not only as a teacher, but
now as a vital part of our leadership team.”
