"I want to let everyone know how blessed we are to have Marsha Ternet. She is so amazing with the kids. She has smiles and stories each time she comes. She has so much patience. The children love going to lunch with her. She is also very flexible with her time and knows that on any given day she may not be needed. We love her!"
