Who’s Who in the TTS Office?

Who’s Who in the TTS Office?

We know that doing business electronically and on the phone can be confusing. So, now that the paperwork is finished, and before things get too far along and you’re embarrassed to ask who is who, we thought we might re-introduce ourselves (with photos) so you might know who you’re talking to or who to contact at TTS. Let’s  start with the administrative staff in Bozeman, MT.

Jennifer Royall: Jennifer is the Head of School; she has been the one answering most of your questions as you prepared your daughters for the semester in Africa. Jennifer was with the teachers in Washington, DC and so many of you met her there. She will be guiding the Campus Visit Trip to Namibia in November– we hope you can join her! And though she is transitioning out of the "go to" role for TTS22 and beginning to focus on enrolling students for TTS23, she is always available to chat with you about your daughter and her experience in South-West Africa. She can be reached via email at and on the office phone 406.586.3096 ext. 702 or in the case of an emergency, by cell, 406.581.7479. 

Aunge Thomas: Aunge is the Dean of Students. She will be the primary parent and group contact once your daughters are overseas. Most of you have already spoken with Aunge during the enrollment process. Aunge will oversee the TTS22 blog, send out mentor comments, and contact parents in the event there are any doctor visits or medical, academic, social or emotional concerns. She has a weekly phone date scheduled with the Program Head, Brenna Kelleher, keeping her in regular contact with the group overseas. Aunge hopes to periodically check-in with each student’s parents by phone to see how everyone is faring as the semester progresses. Aunge is readily accessible via email at, on the office phone 406.586.3096 ext. 705 or in the case of an emergency, by cell, 406.570.5028.

Jim Hammer: Jim is TTS’s Vice-Principal and Admissions Director. Jim is the person in the Bozeman office if you have questions about academic credit, future semesters, SATs, or college planning. He registered all students for their TTS classes and will oversee any student course changes by contacting parents and home high school counselors for prior approval. Jim also oversees midterm and final transcripts. Jim is available at the TTS office 406.586.3096 ext. 703 from 9am – 1pm M-F or via email at

Price Klaas: Price is our Associate Director of Admissions and Business Manager. She has invoiced families for tuition and fees, interviewed the students and helped Jim monitor student paperwork during the enrollment process. She will continue to oversee tuition management during the semester. Direct any financial inquiries to Price at the TTS office 406.586.3096 ext. 704 or via email at .

The Traveling School office is open 9:00am-5:00pm (MST) Monday-Friday. If you’re not sure who to contact, please  or call our office phone: 406.586.3096 ext. 0 or our toll free number: 888-251-7387 to leave a message for any or all four of us.
