Owner
Welcome to the Goddard School. I am MaryBeth Theiss the owner of the Goddard School. I am proud to be associated with the wonderful programs Goddard has to offer and I am thrilled to be able to provide services to my home town. I have been connected to this area all my life. My husband, Michael and our two daughters Hannah and Jenna reside in Shelby Twp. As the parent of two children, I recognize the importance of a safe and nurturing learning environment. In fact, our daughters attended a Goddard School and I enjoyed being at Goddard mom so much that I wanted to be a part of offering the same positive experience to other families. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Western Michigan University and a Masters degree in Management from Antioch University. I have held a management positions for Kodak and International Paper since 1994. I also served in United States Army for eight years. I use my leadership skills and background in business and the military to successfully manage day to day operations of the school. I want to welcome all of our families to our school. I am thrilled to be a part of Goddard and I am committed to provide the highest quality preschool experience for the children in our neighborhood. I am always available to speak with you about your child’s experience here at Goddard school.
