Mrs Coleen, Director Hi, I am so proud to be the Director of The Goddard School. I had the pleasure of breaking ground here at The Goddard School in 2009. I have a Master's degree in Education with over 45 years' experience in all aspects of education. I have been married to my husband Steve for 45 years. We have 3 children, 6 grandchildren, and a fur friend named Sasha. I am CPR and First Aid Certified. My love for books is incredible and my library certainly shows it. It is hard for me to pick my favorite children's book but if I had to it would be "Millions of Cats".
