Division of Enrollment Services
Star Staff for April 2002
SMU History - Teresa began working at Southern Methodist University on July 7, 1999 in the Collections Department. Later she transferred to Financial Aid in the Loan Area. Her co-workers as well as other staff in Enrollment Services nominated Teresa for the Star Staff Award because of her friendly, customer oriented approach to her work.
Personal Stuff - Teresa and her husband have been married for 34 years. They have 3 wonderful sons and 5 beautiful grandchildren. (can you believe that Teresa is a grandmother!)
Teresa has lived in Dallas all of her life -- raised in a neighborhood just north of the Crescent Hotel. She says it has been great seeing all the grand and unbelievable changes that have occurred and are taking place in this great city.
Teresa enjoys walking as exercise and relaxation. Her hobbies include working with ceramics and making beautiful flower arrangements. She plans on pursuing both of her creative pastime activities further.
Since Teresa is a grandparent, she says her free time greatly revolves around her 5 beautiful grandchildren. Saturday mornings are usually spent out at the soccer field watching and cheering her granddaughter as she plays for Hot Shots Soccer Club (see photo). Teresa also enjoys watching her ten-year-old grandson compete in the Special Olympics. At the last games, he won a silver medal in the 50-meter dash (see photo). Teresa says, "My family is the most important aspect of my life and I enjoy spending time and learning from all of them whether young and old."
We are proud to have Teresa as a part of our staff.
