Andrea has worked in early childhood education since 2010. Her career began as an assistant teacher in Massachusetts, which is where she found her love of education. Andrea quickly gained increasing responsibility, owing to her dedication and passion, which eventually led to roles in administration. Andrea says one of the most rewarding aspects of being Center Director is that it allows her to inspire and motivate other educators to be the best in the field! Andrea holds a Bachelor of Arts in Human Development from Merrimack College, with a concentration in school and society – a program that was designed specifically to prepare for a career as a Center Director. She also holds a minor in Elementary Education. Andrea joined the Goddard school in February of 2023, and is excited to be here at the brand-new South Windsor location!
