Meet  Sobia & Shakeel

Meet Sobia & Shakeel

We are the proud owners of the Goddard School of Fort Wayne. Shakeel, a board-certified Physician in Critical Care Medicine, dedicates his time to working in an ICU and educating medical students and junior doctors. Sobia holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Health Informatics, along with a Master's in Mass Communication and Teaching Certification from Ireland. She's currently working on her Graduate Certificate in Early Childhood from Ball State University. Her passion for teaching led her to volunteer in IPS Schools, teaching Pre-K and Kindergarten students while working as a medical coder. "We firmly believe that a child's early years serve as the cornerstone for their future development, fostering essential cognitive and social skills necessary for lifelong learning. Recognizing the need for high-quality early childhood education in the Fort Wayne area, we embarked on opening the Goddard School to nurture the unique potential of every child."

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
