Miss Theresa

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.

Karen lives in Morrison. She has six amazing kids and two spectacular grandkids. In her spare time, she loves to hang out with the kids and grandbabies. She also has tons of critters, including donkeys, sheep, dogs and horses that she love taking care of. Karen loves her coffee; her favorite kind is from Starbucks. Chocolate is definitely her go-to; it’s one of her favorite food groups! She absolutely adores working with children, and currently works in the 3s, 4s & 5s room getting them ready to be successful in kindergarten.

Miss Emily is great with the little ones, she has lots of BIG ideas and is always looking to find ways to make the day to day run more smoothly. In her spare time she loves to spend time with her girls, nieces and nephews playing outside. She is a football fan and her favorite team is the KC Chiefs and she loves anything the color pink!

Miss Gerale (Rae)

Miss Rae comes to us from Clinton, IA but she is originally from the Chicago Area and loves the small town life too and everything that goes with it. She has 2 boys that are older so she misses the younger ages and loves working with the Toddlers. She is very active with the kids in her classroom, she has a lot of tricks up her sleeves to keep the Toddlers engaged and busy in a good way. She is currently finishing up her Early Childhood Education Degree and hopes to continue to work with daycare kids in the future as she has always done work with kids in some form and really enjoys it. When she is not chasing after Toddlers she likes to do arts and crafts, sewing projects and watch Spongebob! She likes the colors purple and orange and collects gym shoes!
