For the learners

Beth Mollenhauer News

You might notice that I tend to wrestle with our challenges. The question of why we do what we do in TTT matters. And, what I believe about who we are doing it for matters just as much. Try to imagine one of your former school teachers. What you probably took for granted when you went to school every day …

Unexpected

Beth Mollenhauer News

Through many experiences, I have learned to hold both the broken and the beautiful in my hands. And since my last blog post, TTT has experienced both the broken and beautiful. On December 26, 2020, our TTT staff experienced the unexpected, tragic loss of a beloved staff member in Haiti, Emmanuel Toussaint. Emmanuel was an Assistant Operations Coordinator for TTT …

Pinch me. Am I dreaming?

I am telling you; this adventure never dulls. Naturally, we figured that a global pandemic would halt TTT for a while and yet, we find ourselves on another path in this journey. While the world appears to be grim and full of loss, the path before us shines bright. During these COVID months, we experimented with Google ads, which to …

Huzzah!

We are all living through the same pandemic. It is simply the weirdest thing ever… to know that our partners in the US, Haiti, Liberia and now Uganda are all experiencing the threat of safety and normalcy because of this virus. Ah yes, if you are reading closely, I wrote Uganda. Amidst the unknowns and uncertainty of COVID-19, a delightful …

Where Our Treasure is Found

Beth Mollenhauer Uncategorized

At this time of year, the typical ask of an organization like ours would be to ask you, the reader, to include us in your end-of-year giving. Instead, I would rather use this moment to tell you about something that TTT is investing in for the next few years. In March, our staff brainstormed about investing in well-established partners, in …

You are not ready yet…

Beth Mollenhauer News

In the early years of TTT, I had the pleasure to meet with a college professor for valuable feedback as we kicked the tires on the material we wrote for our Haitian peers. Most of the time when we met, she would say, “You are not ready yet but when you are, I have someone I want you to meet.” …

Find a Ladder

Beth Mollenhauer Uncategorized

TTT ebbs and flows with the climate of Haiti. Over the past eight years, we have postponed and canceled some seminars due to political unrest and natural disasters. Seminar 2 was scheduled for February 25-March 8 in two locations. In the weeks leading up to the seminar, there were violent anti-government protests, essentially shutting down normal activity across the entire …

Supply and Demand

Beth Mollenhauer News

Participants are plentiful when you build strong partnerships with organizations actively involved in the education field throughout Haiti.  Through these partnerships, we have been able to provide professional development training to over 160 schools across Haiti over the past four years. Let me introduce you to three of our partners… FEPH (Protestant Federation of Schools in Haiti) is an educational …

To the North

Beth Mollenhauer TTT Education

Excitement builds as TTT is about to expand in leaps and bounds… to the north! With a new school year on the horizon, we reflect on how we have trained 1,100 teachers and school leaders over the past seven years. And now, we look forward with great anticipation as we will train about 50% more in this upcoming year because …

It just sounds so good when they say it.

Beth Mollenhauer TTT Education

As we transition to a one-year program, the opportunity to rethink what TTT stands for is now. At TTT’s inception, we were a group of teachers committed to training other teachers. It was easy – we were teachers training teachers. But now, as we have grown and matured as an organization, we are more than just a small group of …
