Hello, my name is Teresa Payne and I am the Assistant Director at our Portage location. I have been with Milestones since July 2017 and opened the Portage center with Lauren in August 2017. I have been in Early Childhood since 2005 where I began teaching as an Assistant Teacher in a 3-year old Preschool classroom. I received my Associates of Arts degree from Kalamazoo Valley Community College. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and being outdoors. I reside in Vicksburg with my boyfriend, David, and two boys, Bryton and Kaeden. I am so thankful to be a part of Milestones and love building the relationships with the children, families and teachers every day.
