My name is Terry Farmer.  I grew up in Arnold, CA enjoying the out-of-doors, where I still live and enjoy hiking, camping and backpacking.
 
After our sons went out of their own, I missed being with children.  With encouragement from customers at the restaurant where I worked and family, I started my career in Child Development.
 
I started working as an aide in the Extended Day after school program, where Early Child Education units are needed to progress in the program.  Over the last eleven years I have obtained a Site Supervisor Permit and am currently working as the Site Supervisor at Hazel Fischer Extended Day.

I consider it an honor to work with your children.
