I feel truly blessed to "work" at St. Therese as a toddler teacher. At this age, children learn and grow at an incredible pace and being able to watch and teach them each day is so satisfying. Toddlers give the best hugs, and to receive hugs on a daily basis is heartwarming. I wouldn't trade my job or my sweet students for the world!
