Mrs. Trevillyan is an Algebra Two and Civil Engineering teacher at Summerville High School. She also heads both math and engineering departments at SHS and is the sponsor of the engineering club.

She attended College of Charleston and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Marine Biology. And later earned her Master’s in Mathematics.

She didn’t actually plan on becoming a teacher; she wanted to be a marine biologist instead.

“I became a teacher by accident actually,” Trevillyan stated, “it wasn’t my major in college and I really just kind of fell into it and have loved it ever since.”

Her coming to work at SHS was actually an accident as well.

“I used to work in Charleston county,” she said, “but I had a co-teacher friend that moved here [to SHS] and she was dead-set on getting me here.”

Miss Trevillyan never fails to bring her lively energy and vivacious personality to her students, making her classroom environment famously welcoming and friendly.

“I think the reason that I’m a good teacher is that I wasn’t a good student,” Trevillyan said, “I think that because of that I can connect to my students and help them not make the same mistakes I did.”

She also sees fun as a big part of her teaching style; it’s important to see the lighter side of every job.

“I focus on review a lot and I make it fun for my students,” said Trevillyan, “I even play disco music on Fridays and help pump up my students!”

Many students appreciate Mrs. Trevillyan’s kind demeanor and need to help. Students from the past and present alike always go to her for homework help, life advice, or just to talk.

Mrs. Trevillyan is known for sharing her love for learning and engineering with everyone she meets.
