Teresa Tucker

Teresa Tucker is the Department Coordinator for the Rice Recreation Center. She joined the team not long after Miss Dee, and is primarily responsible for the financial ins and outs of the department. Known affectionately as Mama T, Teresa is our mom away from home. Not only does she bring in delicious things she cooks and makes, she is always there to give a hug or set us straight when we fall out of line (some of us need tough love more than others!)

Crocheting and knitting are her favorite hobbies, they are how she meditates and finds peace within herself. During the pandemic, Teresa taught herself to sew, and spent her down time making masks for both her Rec family and her actual family. She has three beautiful sons, a devoted husband, a pair of the cutest dogs you’d ever want to see and a cat who judges her.
