In her comings and goings, she has served as a substitute cook, substitute teacher, assistant teacher, and head teacher. She assumed her current role of CQI (Continuous Quality Improvement) officer in 2010. In that role she creates the weekly schedule for Indi Kids personnel, assists teachers as needed with maintenance of classroom function, aides the School Age director in the coordination of School Age Summer Experience field trips, and assists the Director and Assistant Director as needed. Her interest and desire to see children succeed is not limited to her position at Indi Kids. Terry also serves as pastor to the congregation of Bethel Presbyterian Church where she has a great desire for the children of that community and the community at large to learn and grow in positive ways. She sees that her work at Indi kids and in the community go hand in hand towards that end. By far, however, the roles she loves most are those of wife, mother and grammie to those in her family.
