The most important lesson she wants her students to learn is that she cares for them, and they can achieve anything if they work hard for their goals and never give up.

In her free time she enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time in the outdoors.

“I recently visited the Central American country of Honduras to spend time with my son and his family, who are missionaries there,” Teresa said. “It is a beautiful country and I hope to be able to go again soon.”
