Trisha Williams is passionate about helping students demonstrate love for God and his Word by helping them understand the world around them and their purpose in it. The rhetoric of literature, history, and theology are the means she uses to engage students in this grand undertaking. Her love for learning and passion for classical education was passed on to her and her ten siblings from her teaching parents. She graduated from LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas, with a B.A. in English Literature and Language and minor in Biblical Studies in 2005. She became a missionary to Guatemala in 2006 and taught all levels of high school English classes at the International Christian Academy of Guatemala for four years. She also helped coach a Harvard University sponsored debate team working to promote democracy amongst the Americas and saw them compete in El Salvador, Costa Rica and Ecuador. While in Guatemala, she helped establish ESL classes at local churches, as well as encouraged the literacy efforts of fellow missionaries to indigenous Mayan groups.
Ms. Williams is now finishing up her course work for a Master of Arts in Teaching from Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. In her free time she tears her nose out of a book to play the piano, host dinner parties, or critique film. She teaches Sunday school and women’s Bible study classes at College Church, and when not leading short term mission trips to various parts of the globe, spends as much time as possible tutoring Hispanic immigrant children and encouraging the educational pursuits of her thirty nieces and nephews.
