    Hi! My name is Ms. Mai. I have a Bachelor of Science from the University of Connecticut. I’ve spent the bulk of my career in healthcare working in neurodiagnostic department, most recently at Grady in Atlanta. After a long career in corporate America, I felt that the time was right to make a meaningful change in our lives and our careers. My husband and I have two beautiful children. Our eldest is a Goddard alumnus and youngest is at our school. When my eldest son graduated from the Goddard school, he was well prepared for all the challenges that were going to come his way as he progressed to grade-school. From that moment on, I knew that I wanted to be a part of Goddard Family. Over the years, we have felt a strong connection to the Goddard philosophy of fostering the love of learning while providing a safe, nurturing environment for children. Having the opportunity to shape young minds and play a role in development of children is the reason behind my passion to be leading our school

    Executive Director
    Hi! My name is Patti Alvarez. I am a wife and a mother of three wonderful girls. I have a large extended family in New York City and that bond means a lot to me. We moved to Georgia in 2003 for a suburban life. I currently hold a degree in Early Childhood Education. As of this month, it will be 15 years that I have been in Early Childhood Education, of which I have been with Goddard for 13 years and loved every bit if it! With Goddard, I started teaching Private Pre-K and then moved into the role of evaluating and setting the vision for Curriculum. I enjoy getting to know the children and their families. I am a high energy person who will perk up your mornings with my enthusiastic morning greeting! Children love me as I am always ready with hugs and big smiles for them. Goddard's individualized learning and focus on developmental growth, is very dear to my heart and it gives me great joy and pleasure to watch our children blossom in our play-based learning environment. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know our parents and implementing the new projects and goals we set for ourselves every year. Look forward to getting to know you and welcoming you to our loving family at Goddard!
