Theresa has been at Morrison Daycare since 2018, and she loves it. “Your children ROCK!” Theresa has a bachelor’s degree in education and it’s her life’s passion to teach kids. Her life outside the daycare is fairly quiet, except for when her cat decides she wants something. Theresa loves theater, the arts and music. When she gets inspiration, she loves to paint. She is allergic to strawberries and kiwis (even though she likes to eat them both). Challenges do not phase her; they make her try harder. Theresa always tries to be the reason someone smiles every day.
