GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - We paid it forward in Glendale to a woman named Teri McBride, who works at Kindercare Learning Center. She shows a lot of love to her employees and the kids who come there.

McBride loves her job, and it shows. “Teri is an amazing person. She is a workaholic. When you are down, she will cheer you up. She will cheer you up and write you letters. She would always say Ms. Loid - everything will be all right,” Eloise Wodrich said.

McBride is the assistant director at the center. She is not only loved by the employees, but the parents appreciate all of her hard work. Because of her kindness and work ethic, Wodrich wanted to Pay It Forward to her.

“Hi, Miss Teri. We have a surprise for you. We nominated you for the Pay It Forward award because of the work you do for the center,” said Wodrich.

“Oh my goodness. I’m going to cry. Miss Loid Thank you,” said McBride.

You can tell right when you walk into the center, McBride cares about all the children and wants to make sure their experience at childcare is special. “I truly - truly love children. I want children to have the best opportunity out there. We are the beginning of their development. We are going to make presidents, doctors, nurses. We are the foundation of all that learning,” said McBride.
