Lead Teacher - Racing Rabbits
Ms. Belen joined the Goddard School in 2023. Educational Qualifications: • 90-Hour Preschool and 90-Hour Infant and Toddler Certifications • Basic Health and Safety Certified • First Aid and CPR Certified • MSDE Credentialed - Level 3. Ms. Belen has worked with children since 2015. She believes her role is to provide a safe, loving, and structured environment where students and teachers learn together. She also believes in trying our best even though we might not know now, we will learn. She strives to give children the tools to help them express their feelings, improving the classroom environment. Her favorite children’s book is “Bear Wants More” by Karma Wilson. When not at school, Belen enjoys family time which is very important to her. They enjoy walking, going out to eat, or spending time with friends. Eating food from around the world is exciting to her. Watching any movie based on a Jane Austen Book is her comfort zone.

What Teachers Mean to Me
