“I am passionate about all students succeeding in whatever it is they would like to learn,” Ms. Triano says. “I love teaching and my style is evident to students who work with me. Many times, students have given up and I will not allow it. I insist that they try and most come through successfully.”

She believes that a good teacher “receives her finest education from her own students. Every student is different and I have learned to meet the needs and concerns of each one using great variety and creativity.”

As a dedicated educator, Ms. Triano devotes some of her spare time to helping youths who are in the juvenile jail system.
