Meet Derick

After earning his bachelor's degree in Financial Services from Wright State University, Derick received his MBA from Bowling Green State University. Since then, he has worked in corporate finance for over twenty years. Derick is also involved with the Novi Chamber of Commerce. Derick is thrilled to be able to provide The Goddard School's outstanding program to the children and families in the greater Novi community.

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
