Terrie H

Director of Bethany Early Learning Ministry

My name is Terrie and I am so excited to be the Director of Bethany Early Learning Ministry! I have been in Early Childhood Education for nearly 30 years! I have been an in home provider, Infant Toddler Director and spent nearly nineteen years as a Director/Regional Director of family owned facilites licensed for children ages 2-12 years. I have worked as a Consultant and then Director for Center Grove School Corporation in which I helped with the design of new child care facility for Center Grove staff. I worked closely with licensing in preparation of opening the new center. Bright Beginnings Early Learning Academy opened in January of 2015.

My passion is working with children and I am eager and excited to help Bethany Early Learning Ministry reach out to as many families as possible to provide the best Early Childhood education experience to guarantee a successful start in Kindergarten. Building relationships with families and staff has always been one of my top priorities. I love planning family involvement activities and creating ways to bring staff and families together. Some of those activities have been a Family Dance in February, muffins with moms, donuts with dads and a yearend family picnic celebration!

I have lived in Greenwood Indiana, most of my life. I graduated from Center Grove High School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health Education with a minor in Family Life Education from Indiana University (Bloomington). I am married to Chris and we have 3 grown children, Nathan, Ethan and Chloe. Nathan has been married to Casey for 4 years. Ethan will marry in August of 2017. Chloe is an ABA therapist in Greenwood and currently works part-time at BELM.
We are empty nesters but are very blessed to have our children living within a 2 mile radius! We have one fur baby, Ruby, a Yorkie she keeps us very busy. We attend Saint Francis and Clare Catholic Church. I love to travel, love football, especially the Cleveland Browns and IU Basketball! I enjoy entertaining and love spending as much time as possible with family and friends!
