Board of Directors

Dear Friends of Literacy, The sun is shining, the weather is warm, and TLC is buzzing with busy students. Summer has quickly become our busiest and favorite time here at TLC. We are thrilled to be in our second year of the summer SOAR program, providing 8 weeks of academics to students at risk of summer learning loss. Visit page 8 for all the details on this fantastic program. We are proud to have increased the intensity of our program and offer more support to students. We served 449 students last year. 80% of our students attended programs at least two days a week. The average student received 103 hours of support. Our impact in numbers for 2018-19 are outlined on pages 3 and 4. As we celebrate the growth and success of our students, due to our incredible corps of volunteers, we are also looking to the future of TLC. Our Board of Directors is excited to announce the launch of our Legacy Literacy Society. We encourage you to learn more on page 10. Help us ensure the longevity of TLC through planned giving. Thank you to each of you for your continued support of Teton Literacy Center. We are excited to collaborate and grow together. Sincerely,

Peter French, President Bill Best, Vice President Amy Staehr, Secretary Patrick Trucco, Treasurer Alex Dawson Joannie Epstein Jeff Heilbrun Jack Krouskup Debbie Schlinger Jim Thorburn Cristine Wehner

A Tutoring Story Introducing, Tiffany and her tutor, Kris! Tiffany joined TLC programs as a Practice Kindergarten student in 2017 and continued in both our Enrichment and Tutoring programs. Tiffany was then selected to join our SOAR Pioneers Cabin last summer, providing her with year-round learning that allowed her to start first grade reading at grade level! Upon diving into our mid-year data, it became clear that Tiffany has made significant growth this year—indeed, Tiffany has shown 8 months of growth in just 4 months! Her growth illustrates the effectiveness of TLC and our ability to help students gain two months of literacy growth for every month they spend in our tutoring program. Tiffany is currently reading 3 months ahead of the benchmark for her grade level! Tiffany will continue to work with Kris, who provides a safe, caring and fun environment. With Kris’s support we hope that Tiffany will finish the school year above grade level and ready to go into the summer season more ready to learn than ever!


Family Literacy Program Student Success Stats:

Number of Students: 153 (43 children and 110 adults) Number of Volunteers: 9 Student Hours: 10,633

100% of TLC families were reading at home, with their child by the end of the year.

100% of our TLC parents attending English Classes regularly felt more involved and connected with their community after participating in our Adult program for 9 months

100% of our TLC pre-k parents felt that their child was ready for entering Kindergarten in the Fall.

A Family Success Story Isabel is a mom of four: Samantha, Isaac, Katrina, and Elvis. Isabel first came to TLC in fall 2018 to enroll her youngest, Sami, into Literacy Lab. Through our Family Literacy program, Isabel also enrolled in our ESL evening classes. Through ESL classes and our Language Exchange Program, Isabel has worked on her goals of becoming a more independent parent by expanding her vocabulary, feeling confident speaking in English and becoming better at using a computer. Isabel works over 40 hours at her full-time job in town, helps her children with homework, takes care of her mother, mother-in-law, father, and bakes in her free time for her own baking business! After almost two years of ESL, reading every night from her ESL book and meeting with her Language Exchange partner, Isabel has been able to expand her vocabulary so much that she felt comfortable in applying for a job promotion, which she received! As she states, “Today, I feel the strongest version of myself, and I owe it all to TLC’s support”. Isabel also attended parent workshops focused on financial literacy and computer skills, so she can one day take her baking business as her full-time job and do what she loves every day!

Enrichment Program An Enrichment Story Students in our Movie Magic Enrichment Club at TLC aimed to answer one question during their session: How do we effectively tell a story through film? In exploring this driving question, the students went through the entire process of writing a story, including crafting themes, plots and character development. They studied set and costume design using books and movie trailers and used this knowledge to create their own. They worked together to direct each other and their films, integrating the many social-emotional skills required for group projects.

Number of Students: 265 Number of Volunteers: 14 Student Hours: 16,831

The final outcome was two wonderful movies – one about circus performers and corndogs, the other about a magical teacher and his students turned vampires!

TLC provides year round support through intensive summer programming SOAR is an 8-week intensive academic summer program that prepares students for their next school year and beyond by focusing on high level literacy, vocabulary and math instruction and applying the skills students learn through enrichment opportunities. Teton Literacy Center launched this program in 2018 to extend services to atrisk students. SOAR collaborates with the local school district and community partners to provide a high quality educational experience and connect lifelong learning to the classroom. SOAR works to combat the average 2-3 month learning loss that low income students see during summer months. Mornings are focused on academics through differentiated reading and math instruction, while afternoons integrate STEAM efforts and community field trips.

98% of students K-7th illustrated maintenance or growth in reading, as opposed to average 2 months of summer reading loss.

The average student gained 2.7 months in reading during the 8 weeks.

100% of students K-2 illustrated maintenance or growth in math.

This program is funded through the generous support of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.



SOAR at TLC was developed out of Teton Literacy Center’s strategic planning process. A community need task force was created which consisted of TLC staff, board members and community members including school district personnel. After looking at our current efforts and needs in our community, it was determined that summer was an opportunity for intensified student support. SOAR was born.

Volunteer of the Year - Debbie Schlinger

Teton Literacy Center would like to recognize Debbie Schlinger as TLC’s Volunteer of the Year! Debbie has been a Teton Literacy Center board member and volunteer tutor since 2014. She has played an integral role in our organization, ensuring we continue to thrive and serve our community. She is an incredible support within all of our programs at Teton Literacy Center. She consistently goes above and beyond by attending TLC events and workshops, and she even performed in Jackson’s Got Talent (side note: she’s an amazing tap dancer). Debbie is a huge asset to our tutoring program serving her student and helping us recruit volunteers. She provides a safe, fun and educational space for her tutoring student. Her student’s reading level has grown from a Kindergarten level to well over a first grade reading level! This significant growth can be attributed to Debbie’s patience, kindness and overall approach to teaching/tutoring. She also uses her experiences as a librarian and English teacher to work with our preschool students each month by providing storytime. Sometimes, she even comes dressed as the character of the story! If you take a look around the classroom while Debbie reads outloud, you can see every student hooked to her every word, with a big smile on their faces and loving literacy through Debbie. Thank you to Debbie and all of our volunteers.

Literacy Legacy Society Student Story Teton Literacy Center is excited to announce the formation of the Literacy Legacy Society. This group is dedicated to ensuring a lasting legacy of education and literacy support in our community. This society is a way of building a testament to the lives and values of the community that has supported this center since the beginning. Including Teton Literacy Center in your planned giving and estate planning is ensuring the children and families of our community have access to high quality educational resources for years to come. Together we can close the achievement gap. Live a legacy. Leave a legacy. Thoughtful planned giving is an ideal way to support Teton Literacy Center as it allow for future revenue streams that will sustain TLC programs. Planned giving options create legacies for both our donors and for TLC. There are numerous planned giving options including:

I started using Teton Literacy services when I was in middle school. I needed help with my English class and math class, so they provided a tutor. I worked with her all year and I was able to develop new skills. My tutor would also help me with anything I needed and in other subjects in school. Through this experience, I learned that it important to ask for help and that there are resources in the community that can help me succeed. Teton Literacy Center helped me create a future that included life-long learning. After I graduated from Journeys School I decided to attend the University of Wyoming. I recently graduated with a degree in Human Development and Family Science. I enjoy working with families and children. This summer I chose to come back to TLC for my internship hours and give back to our community. I chose TLC because it’s an organization that truly helps kids and families. During my time here I have been able to learn and grow in many different ways. I have also been able to see the impact that TLC has on our community.

• Bequests: A bequest is a testamentary gift by will or revocable/living trust that enables the donor to keep assets during lifetime, but support TLC through a lasting legacy. This is one of the most common vehicles for planned giving. Bequests can take a variety of forms including designating a specific amount of money, a particular asset, a percentage of the total estate, or a residual gift. • Gifts of Retirement Plans/IRAs: Teton Literacy Center can be designated as a beneficiary for all or a portion or all of a retirement plan. Designating TLC as the recipient of your “qualified charitable distributions” through IRA rollovers is also a vehicle for planned giving. • Gifts of Life Insurance Policies: Teton Literacy Center can be easily added as a beneficiary to life insurance policies. TLC can also be gifted the policy directly. • Charitable Lead and Remainder Trusts: These planned giving options allow for donors to pass assets to their children and grandchildren while also supporting the sustainability of Teton Literacy Center through a significant gift.
