Mrs. Terrie's Note: "Words to live by: If you can read well and write well, everything is possible. I grew up hearing my dad say this as I struggled through lessons. His priceless words encouraged me and others to be not only determined but also persistent. This advice is his legacy to me, and my gift to students everywhere."

Over the past 10+ years, she has taught reading, writing, and presentation privately to k-college students from Plano, Frisco, Allen, Dallas, Prosper, Lovejoy, McKinney, Farmers Branch, Rockwell and Southlake ISD, as well as, St. Mark’s School of Texas, Hockaday, Parish, and Greenhill private schools.
