    I am excited to be joining The Goddard School family! Speaking of which, my family is, and has always been, an intricate part of who I am; and I am so fortunate that I now have the ability to grow with them as members of the Peachtree City community. My husband, Ronak, daughter, Mila, and I live in Atlanta – we love the vibrancy and the buzz of the city; however, we were drawn to Peachtree City’s family-focused, tight-knit community as a place for our daughter to learn and grow. Children truly thrive in these environments! We recently celebrated Mila’s first birthday in April and will be enrolling her at The Goddard School when we open. Helping facilitate a child’s lifetime love of learning has been an enduring passion of mine for more than a decade. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts in early childhood education, a Masters in educational administration and policy, and a Doctorate in educational leadership. I began my teaching career in 2008 with Gwinnett County Public Schools and just recently spent a year as a kindergarten teacher with Woodward Academy. Being a lifelong learner myself only further fuels my passion to ignite that love in others! I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child – just ask Mila! Our family, friends, and community play a critical role in the person she is and will become. That being said, I am honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the village that will help navigate your child through the learning adventure they are about to embark upon. At The Goddard School, you will find a collaborative school environment, which is instrumental to the success of our teachers and students. Through collaborative partnerships among our staff with parents and our community, you will find all you need is right here at The Goddard School. I cannot wait to meet all of you and to get started!

    Hi! I am from North Carolina, where I received my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. After making the move to Georgia, I began working as a substitute teacher in preschools and soon made the decision to make childcare my new career. I began working at The Goddard School shortly after and working here has only encouraged my decision further. I plan to go back to school shortly in order to further my education in order to be the best teacher I can be!

  •  Susan


    My name is Susan David and my family and I are from North Carolina. So, we love the Carolina Panthers! My husband and I love to watch all sports. We are NY Mets fans, and SC Gamecocks fans. I love the Saints but my husband does not. So, it gets interesting in our house when the Panthers play the Saints. We moved to Peachtree City for my husband’s job. We are loving this new journey in our lives. I have three kids and one very spoiled dog. My family loves to spend time out doors exploring and watching movies together. We are a very family oriented family. I am excited to be a part of the Goddard team. I have been a preschool teacher for about eight years now. I have always loved working with kids. They still teach my new things daily. I am a big believer that kids should do all their own art work. It is great to see how they put a craft together and how they interpret the craft. I am so glad I get to be a part of your child’s growth. Favorite Children's Book: Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein. Quote: "Family is everything."

    Resource Teacher
    Hi, I’m Teresa Horlacher, and I’m glad to be a part of the Goddard family! I’ve lived in Fayette County most of my life and have three grown children. They mean the world to me! Recently, I went back to college and completed my psychology degree. After that I worked at Promise Place, as the Child Advocate. I’ve also worked for the Fayette County Board of Education as a paraprofessional for children with special needs. Other than that, I’ve enjoyed teaching preschool at my church and teaching on Sunday mornings, along with other jobs along the way. Photography, reading, walking, and dancing are some hobbies I enjoy. Being with family and friends is my favorite pastime, however. I feel blessed to have wonderful people in my life.
