My name is Theresa, and I was born in France, moved and settled in Carmel, California at an early age, and then moved to San Jose as an adult. I am married to a wonderful man and together we have six grown children and three grandchildren. After taking over our family business in Carmel in early 80's, I decided to close the business and follow my then husband to San Jose, and start a new business as a "Family Child Care Provider". It has been the most wonderful, fulfilling, satisfying career move I could have ever made. Every day my life is full of enthusiasm and joy to teach the children and spend time with them. It's a job I absolutely LOVE.
