Meet Parina

I am thrilled to be able to provide The Goddard School’s outstanding FLEX program to the children and families in the community. I have two children of my own and recognize the importance of a safe, quality and nurturing learning environment. After receiving my Masters in Business Administration, I have worked in management for over 11 years in various industries. I believe in providing a learning environment in which the children can thrive both socially and academically. Best part of my day is to see the big smile and receive hugs from the children at our school! I would like to extend an invitation to you and your family to visit our beautiful school, meet our loving teachers, including our outstanding Educational Directors. We would love to tell you more about the Goddard approach to learning!

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
