Hi there, my name is Terri Mackey. Ohio was my place of birth; however I have resided in six other states, eventually finding permanent residency in California. I earned a B.A. at Fresno State and began a career in business. Years later, my desire to teach, lead me back to school to earn my teaching credential.
Teaching is a profession that I find exhilarating, and I chose to be a part of it in 1994. That makes 20 plus years that I have had the opportunity to interact and watch the educational blooming of endless amounts of children. During my time at Penryn, I have had the honor of working with students in Kindergarten, Second Grade, a One/Two split and 5th Grade.
Each new school year brings the excitement of wondrous possibilities for both my students and me. We work together, learn together, support each other, and build our classroom community into a functioning unit. I feel it is always time well spent.
“Education is helping the child realize his potentialities.” ~Erich Fromm
