We are celebrating 30 years of TEC! The impact that the Trietsch Enrichment Center has made on hundreds of children and their families is astounding, and the relationships don't end after preschool. Join us on February 13 for the 30th anniversary celebration.
Read Morgan Yeatts's story about her personal experience with TEC:
Since I was a
little girl, I always loved school. To me, the first day of school has always
been a little bit like Christmas morning, full of joy and excitement. This
year, I started my senior year at Flower Mound High School, and next year will
continue my adventure at The University of Alabama- and I could not be more
With that being said, my love for school started when I walked through
the doors at TEC. I was no more than three or four years old at the time, but
the impact that TEC had on my life was enormous, to say the least.
What not every
pre-school can offer is the sense of family that can be found at TEC. The
teachers and students form tight-knit bonds- the kind that last a lifetime.
was always a shy kid, but one TEC teacher, in particular, was able to change
that. Lynn Parker was the best Pre- School teacher that any kid could have
asked for. Even though I was a very shy child, she made sure that I always felt
included. She welcomed me with open arms, and it was (and is) easy to see God working
Not only did Lynn
impact me through my TEC years, she also continued to be a part of my life ever
since. In sixth grade, she began to be my small group leader for youth group,
and continued to teach me how to grow in my faith. To this day, she still has
that impact on not just me, but all of my classmates as well. She is a constant
in my life, and for that I am eternally grateful. She is a mentor to me in all
things, so quick to love and slow to anger, and her ability to always have faith
astounds me at times. Always wonderful, she continues to be there for me, every
step of the way.

The relationships we
make as children are vital to the way we grow up, and I am elated that I got to
have the experience that I did at TEC. The sense of community and the shared
love are exactly what children need. The teachers at TEC always made me fell
like I fit in, and they made sure that no child was left out of any activity.
It is not an experience that I could ever replace, nor would I ever want to.
TEC is the foundation upon which my love for education was built, and I can
only hope that every other child in the program feels the same love and light
that I felt everyday at TEC.
