I have my Masters in Special Education and taught English in South Korea for 2 years. I have assisted in raising over a Read more dozen children and have an unbelievable ability to make learning fun in every way.

Terra was great. The kids loved her and want her to come back. She was on time, and brought her own games. I felt very comfortable leaving her with the kids. Thanks Terra for a long over due night out!!
