She was drawn to Seven Gen because of the hands-on and integrated approach to learning. Terry feels that every child here is seen as an individual who learns in his/her own way and pace. Our approach allows us to help all children to grow and learn in an environment that is active, fun, and interesting.

Terri lives in Barto with her husband and two daughters. They love hiking, skiing, going to the beach, paddle boarding, kayaking, going to amusement parks, visiting National Parks or just hanging at home for a family game or movie night

Makayla Fleming 

Makayla grew up in Easton, PA. Makayla went to The Pennsylvania State University – Berks Campus to complete her Elementary and Early Childhood Education Degree. She did her student teaching in Reading, PA in a kindergarten classroom. During the summer months, Makayla was a summer camp counselor at Kids Co-Op

Since Makayla was little, she always wanted to become a teacher. Her reasoning for why she always knew she was going to be an educator was because Makayla has a brother that is seven years younger than her. Growing up she helped take care of him in the summer months and was able to help him learn and grow. This has inspired Makayla to keep following her dreams. Another reason for wanting to be a teacher is walking into her own classroom and meeting new students. Makayla will be able to see the students’ successes and growth from start to finish. It is such an amazing feeling seeing how far your students have come. Lastly, Makayla wants her students to have a love of learning. She would like to be able to make learning fun and exciting.
