Ms. Harvey has worked with the Goddard School since 2010. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Hood College. She began her Goddard career at the Goddard School in Gaithersburg as a teacher in the Early Preschool program and continued into the Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs. In 2013, she made the move to administration and proudly opened the Goddard School in Silver Spring in 2015. Ms. Harvey also has three sons all of whom have attended/ are attending the Goddard School in Silver Spring! As a parent as well as an educator, she knows the benefit children gain from a phenomenal early education program. Not only gaining academic skills, but also the social and emotional preparation to be ready to "take on the world" as they head to "big kid" school and the world!

What Teachers Mean to Me
