Greetings! My name is Teresa Hauck and I am the Center Director at the Cascade facility. Immediately after high school, I pursued a career in early childhood and obtained a degree from Grand Rapids Community College. I have been working in the field ever since! I have lived locally my whole life and married in the fall of 2011. My husband and I purchased a home together shortly after where we have been able to enjoy our time with our son and daughter doing all the things we love; spending time outside, being active, and enjoying nature. I have been working in childcare since about 1998 and have been at Milestones since 2006. My journey through the early childhood field has included teaching infants and toddlers, directing a school age program, teaching a kindergarten enrichment program and finally, taking on the role of center director. Children have always been my first love. They are so full of life and so eager and ready to embrace learning! What a fulfilling job to be able to watch the process of learning transpire! I feel so blessed to have had such wonderful mentors that have guided me and for having met Kelly Russell early in my career as I feel she shares a similar passion. I have been given the opportunity to work for a great company that always puts the children and families first!
