About Us
Samantha Fulton ~ Director of Dual Enrollment

Picture of Samantha FultonFor most of my life, I knew I wanted to work in education. I have a background as a middle and high school educator. Over the last 10 years, I have had the opportunity to teach and learn alongside many amazing students. I have taught both math and science. I love being in the classroom and watching my students grow as individuals. To see the aha moment when something they were struggling with finally clicks, is an amazing moment. Education is the foundation that allows individuals to grow, and I have had the privilege to share in the growth of many students. Although I have shifted out of the classroom, I am looking forward to helping high school students who are seeking higher education opportunities.  

As the Director of Dual Enrollment, I will continue to champion the cause of education. I hope to play a pivotal role between the high school and the college level by enabling high school students to access higher education opportunities. It is my hope to use my experience and knowledge to help better serve high schools, teachers, and students through their Dual Enrollment Journey. I am excited to join the Trine Team whose passions align with my own.

Outside of work, Ryan my husband of 18 years and my two children Collin and Madalynn enjoy camping, hiking, and kayaking. We have three dogs (yes, I said 3 :), and as a former science teacher I also have an array of unconventional pets. When time allows, I like exploring and learning new things and I am always starting up a new hobby.
