    Mrs Erika

    Owner
    Originally from Cincinnati, I came to Atlanta to pursue an electrical engineering degree from Georgia Tech. After graduating, I was employed by a fortune 100 company for 10+ years in various roles of increasing responsibility and leadership. It is also here where I have three US patents credited to my name. During this period I developed an interest in the business of our organization and earned an MBA from Emory University. Shortly thereafter I had two children and all changed! Opening The Goddard School has given me the ability to be more impactful in the lives of children as well as our community. I now feel that I am making a difference. Outside of operating the Goddard School, my time is spent with my family supporting my children’s very active extra-curricular schedule. Through the years, I have been active with my children’s school where I have served as PTA president, school council member, room mom, team mom and much more. I have a love of children’s book with my favorite being The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. My now college age children credit their love of learning to their years at The Goddard School. I am a graduate of Leadership Georgia, on the Board of Directors of Ferst Readers, and active in many service organizations. My goal for our school is to create a lifelong love of learning because we truly feel that this is the foundation for academic success. We also hope that our families make a few friends along the way!
  •  LaToya

    LaToya

    Executive Director
    Hello, I'm LaToya. I was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida. I am a proud alumna of Florida State University, where I received my Bachelor's of Science in Sociology with a double minor in Child Development and Psychology in 2007, and have been working with children since. I have been apart of The Goddard School family since 2017, and I absolutely love it. Witnessing new growth, and new experiences through the eyes of a young child as they grow into the leaders of our future is something I hold very dear to my heart. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, trying new restaurants, and traveling. My favorite children's book is "The Three Little Pigs" as it is such a great interactive book for all ages. A quote I live by: "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use." - Emily Post
