Co-Owner, M.S. Early Childhood Pscyhology
Sheryl is the Owner of the Goddard School located in Elgin. Sheryl’s inspiration to open the school came from her young daughters, Sophia and Emma, who are now Goddard graduates. Her Master's degree in psychology coupled with her experience of working at the American Academy of Pediatrics allows her to truly appreciate the importance of providing a solid foundation for young children. She believes taking care of children's hearts, bodies and minds gives her the opportunity to make a difference in their future and the future of all of those who are touched by them. This together with helping families find balance in their lives has inspired her to offer the BEST early childhood education program.
