    I have been at The Goddard School of Fenton since 2022 and I've worked with children for the past 21 years. Children may forget what you said or how you taught it, but you leave a lasting impression when they believe in themselves because you first believed in them. In return, they will remember for a lifetime how you made them feel. What a reward!
