About Professor TRIGO
Professor Trigo is a former Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Clown who ran away from the circus and joined Utah!
Originally from New Jersey, Professor Trigo moved to Utah after touring in the circus. In 2000, she started an entertainment company, Funny Girl Productions. Professor Trigo is a true "Edutainer" (entertains while she educates).
Professor Trigo has always loved performing and learning and wanted to bring her passion of both to others.
After performing hundreds of school assemblies and working as a substitute teacher for over 10 years, Professor Trigo decided to become a full-time educator.
She now has a Bachelors Degree in Special Education, a Masters Degree in Secondary Mathematics Education (5-12) and is in the process of earning her Doctorate of Education in Leadership and Management (Anticipated December 2021)! Professor Trigo was nominated for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching and is also a member of Kappa Delta Pi, the International Honor Society in Education and MENSA, the high IQ society.
When she is not working with her amazing students at school, Professor Trigo enjoys hanging out with her three wonderful kids (well, they're all adults now) and husband Andrew. She is also a competitive bowler (217 average), loves to play softball and tennis, and likes to sing, dance and play both board and video games.
