Triangles Staff


Teresa Quillen

I’ve worked at the child care center since 1995. My tenure began in a subbing capacity and very quickly moved into a full time teaching position with preschool aged children. I love the kids and what I do. It is a pleasure to come to work every day. A few things I value about our school are the diversity and center city location which makes museums and theaters accessible by foot. It is important to have the warmth and community of friends whether you are staff, parent or child. I plan to cherish all the wonderful experiences and memories when I retire from FCCC.

I have worked at Friends Child Care since 1997. I currently work in the Triangle Classroom but also enjoy running our Summer Camp program. I have experience with all age groups. My experience working here at FCCC has taught me to appreciate how children grow and develop and has expanded my knowledge in these areas. Working here keeps me young at heart.
