Ms. Amber is the original owner of the 18-year-old Goddard School in Forest Hill, MD. She has three children, a son-in-love and two grandchildren, one a Goddard graduate and one a current Goddard student. She met her husband of 34 years at Gettysburg College where she majored in English and Elementary Education, followed by a Master’s degree in Reading at Towson University as she taught 3rd grade in Oxford, PA. She dreamed of opening her own school which began with the education of her own children and developed into the three Goddard schools that she and her husband now oversee. The theme of our school is the “Joy of Reading” and she seeks to instill her love of reading through a phonic rich curriculum. She strives each year to provide a solid foundation, socially and cognitively, as her teachers’ nurture each child’s heart, body and mind. Her goal is that every parent will drop off their child with confidence, joy and peace knowing their child is in the best of hands and school.
