    Hi my name is Ms. Julie and I am so excited to be joining the wonderful staff here at The Goddard School as a Director. I am originally from New York but came to Maryland to attend Towson University and stayed when I met my husband. I graduated from Towson in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

Reading is a passion of mine, and I try to do it as much as possible. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband. Come in and see why we are much more than a daycare or childcare. We are a preschool.

He has many opportunities to put his IT skills to use, keeping the classroom computers running and helping his IT-challenged wife handle the intricacies of the modern world.

    Hello, my name is Ms. Haley and I'm excited for the opportunity to have fun here while teaching and exploring with kids and staff. I graduated from VCU in 2015 with a degree in Art Education!

I’ve always wanted to work with kids because I enjoy seeing how each child has their own developing personality that allows them to have fun and grow in different ways. I love exploring to new places and seeing new things like National Parks, other countries, art museums and movies. I think seals are hilarious and pandas are super cute but nothing beats the happiness and comfort of a dog!
