Denise, Director My name is Miss Denise and I am so excited to be rejoining The Goddard School family! I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Kindergarten Education from Penn State University. I also have taken classes at Cabrini College as I worked towards my Master’s Degree in Education with a Reading Specialist Certification.
During my summers at Penn State, I worked at The Goddard School in the Infant, First Steps, Toddler, Get-Set, and Pre-K classrooms. After graduating, I taught Pre-K for two years. More recently, I taught third grade in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for eleven years.
My husband and I have two young sons and live in Bedminster Township. Our oldest son started attending The Goddard School several years ago. Watching him grow and blossom here inspired me to once again return to this amazing school. I am truly looking forward to helping you and your children feel at home here!

Barbara, Lead Teacher Ms. Barb’s philosophy is to love and nurture children especially in the infant stage. She believes that early childhood educators are responsible for providing infants, toddlers and young children with positive learning experiences. Children have the right to have their needs met and should receive the proper education while in the care of their teachers.

Ms Anne, Assistant Teacher My name is Ms. Anne, and I am thrilled to be teaching in the Kindergarten classroom at The Goddard School!

Before coming to The Goddard School, I taught in a second-grade classroom, and my student teaching practicum was completed in a kindergarten classroom in Bensalem School District. I completed my undergraduate studies at Holy Family University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

I believe that early childhood education is essential for setting young learners up for future success. Children are capable, competent, and able to absorb what they learn through play and fun. As a teacher, it is my job to feed students’ desires to learn, create a safe environment for them, and build their self-esteem so that they may enter their academic career feeling confident and independent. I truly look forward to making a difference in the lives of your children.

Nicole, Resource My name is Miss Nicole and I am proud to be a teacher at The Goddard School. I love working with children of all ages and becoming a teacher has always been a dream of mine.
I started working at The Goddard School in 2016. I am a part-time aid during the school year and a full-time assistant during summer camp. Currently, I am attending Penn State University to earn a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Special Education.
I absolutely love seeing a child's reaction when he or she learns something new or embraces a novel idea. Knowing that I can make a positive impact on children during their formative years is simply amazing. I am so excited to work with your young learners and help them grow each day!
