Meet 'Granny T'

February 08, 2016

The holidays truly bring out the best in people. Please meet Granny “T” one of Santa’s elves and also moonlighting as one of our wonderful AmeriCorps volunteers. When she’s not reading and tutoring her group of young students at A. Dorothy Hains Elementary School, you can find Ms. Trammell in the midst of some other school adventure to serve both the students and staff alike.

On a typical day, Ms. Trammell works with five small groups of students helping them with their reading skills and comprehension. Armed with a ready smile and words of encouragement, Ms. Trammell has high expectations for all of her “kids.” The students for their part are responding by not only doing better with reading but by demonstrating better behavior and attention in their other classes.
