  • Mr Anthony

    Mr Anthony

    Owner
    We are Anthony and Kristy Busack, the proud onsite owners of The Goddard at Brooks School. In searching for a solution to reduce business travel and spend more time with our two sons; Dominic and Enzo, along with a desire to invest in our community, the decision was made to purchase this well-established school in 2018. Kristy works as a counselor at Cathedral High School and graduated with a Masters in Education, while I graduated from the Kelly School of Business in Bloomington prior to working in the medical device and software field as both a director of sales and a global sales trainer; where I realized the rewarding feeling of teaching. Understanding the value of a strong education and recognizing the impact a great teacher can have on our own children, we felt an immediate connection to the Goddard philosophy of the Fun Learning Experience, and fell in love with its safe and nurturing environment. We look forward to you joining our Goddard Family! - Mr. Anthony
