Government and sociology teacher Charles Triggs announced his retirement at a faculty meeting today after 50 years spent at Newton. Triggs said he felt like it was the right time to make the decision and is looking forward to the opportunity to spend more time with his wife and children.

“The comradery of the faculty is (my favorite thing about Newton High School). I will miss the students and the faculty get-togethers,” Triggs said.

Triggs said the one thing that has changed the most in his 50 years is the attitude of students as a whole.

“I will remember my involvement with student council, coaching softball and filming the football games,” Triggs said.

Triggs plans to continue as a driver’s education instructor during the summers. As for his time teaching, he said he has no regrets looking back.   

“It’s been fun. I’ve enjoyed it.”

    I was an exchange student from Hungary and I attended your government class. You were trully a great teacher.
    You got me interested in government and it wasn’t awesome to follow the 2016 elections and understand everything that was going on.
    Thank you!
