    I am very excited to be part of The Goddard School family. As part of the family, I am looking forward to sharing the days with your children. I have worked with children since I was 14 years old and have built my career and life around teaching and helping children. I graduated from Pace University with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I moved to Brookfield, CT from Somers, NY about nine years ago with my three boys. In my spare time you will most likely find me watching one of my boys playing baseball, basketball or lacrosse.

    I have had a love and passion for teaching young children ever since I can remember. I have been working with children for the last twenty years and I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the team here at The Goddard School. I've always been able to see life through a child’s eyes, which I believe is amazing. I'm excited to get to know all of your children and make their very first experience at school positive, upbeat and fun for all of us. I love being outdoors and  being active. I have a lot of energy and positivity to share. I love to sing , dance and embrace my free spirit. I am also a Mom of two wonderful and now big kids, but in Mommy's eyes they will always and forever be my babies and greatest accomplishment. I am excited to teach your children many skills that they will take with them through their journey of life.

    I am so excited to be a part of the amazing team at The Goddard School. I have always loved working with children. I studied Early Childhood Education at Post University. I then worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant for some time. Working at Goddard has helped me to realize why I chose ECE in the first place. Waking up and being able to do this everyday, to help shape children, watch them grow and create special bonds everyday, is what I live for. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and their families and watching the children develop during their time in my classroom.

    I am thrilled to be a part of The Goddard School family. This is one of the most rewarding careers I have ever experienced. My original background being in retail management I have found myself with an entirely new interest. Originally from Long Island, NY I relocated to Connecticut in 1990 with my husband Kevin and our son Kevin. Our family grew over the years with the additions of Christopher, Connor, and Kayla. As our children got older I became very involved in their lives and our community...as a cub scout leader, Vice President of the PTO at Center School, and from team mom to Vice President of Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading. I also volunteered and worked in the Brookfield schools for many years. There is nothing in this world more rewarding than being a part of a child's growth and development. I am honored to be part of your child's life and dedicated to making their time at Goddard the most rewarding experience ever!

    I have been working with children for many years and am truly delighted to join the Goddard School family. Like you, I am a proud parent. I have two boys that are my heart. We love to walk our dog Tula or play with our cat Presely. We are huge baseball fans. Both of my boys are on our town’s baseball team. We love to watch Yankees baseball or actually play it in the front yard. Professionally, I graduated from The Borough of Manhattan Community College with an Associates degree in Early Childhood Infant Education. Then went on to The City College of New York and graduated with my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I teach because I simply adore and love working with children. Being a part of their daily “Aha!” moments and overall educational growth is something that I cherish.

    I have been so honored to work and learn at The Goddard School. I grew up in the fast paced life of New York City and I now live in Brookfield with my husband and son. I have always worked with people and found juggling so many tasks at once very easy, but never rewarding. Goddard has changed all of that for me. Now I’m able to pass my own knowledge on to the children, and I’m learning so much from them as well. I am excited to continue to assist your children develop and learn during their time here at Goddard.

I am currently in my last year of college at University of California San Diego (UCSD) getting my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Business and Medical Administration with a minor in Early Childhood Education. My passion for teaching started in high school when I enrolled in an early childhood development class and was able to work directly with preschoolers through that program. I am committed to creating an environment where your child is valued, trusted and a priority of our classroom. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with the Stingray Class!

    I am so excited to be working at The Goddard School! I am the oldest of four, so I’ve always been taking care of children in one way or another. I started officially working with children when I babysat for some families in my neighborhood. I did this every weekend for many years, and I loved spending time with them as they grew up. It is amazing to watch them discover the world and develop their own personalities. I graduated from The Marvelwood School, and I am in the process of obtaining my higher education. I have a rabbit and a fish, and in my spare time I love music, cooking, and going antique shopping! I am so honored to watch over your babies, and I can’t wait to get to know all of you!
