Meet Abby

Abby Hendren is the Owner of The Goddard School – Lee’s Summit (Lakewood). She and her husband, Shane, have lived in Lee’s Summit for 10 years, and were both born and raised in the area. Abby is originally from St. Joseph, MO, and Shane is a local Blue Springs High School graduate. Their two children, Connor & Cody, will attend their Goddard School, and Abby can’t wait to open and provide a warm, welcoming environment for the families of their community. Abby & Shane met at Missouri State University and their love for outdoor adventures and all things Missouri, will be evident in the decor of the school. Abby has always been passionate about education and knows firsthand the importance, not only of early childhood education, but of the role children’s educators play in their development & learning experience. Abby grew up helping her mom, a now retired early childhood educator, in her classrooms and realized the impact a safe, nurturing environment has on children’s capacity to learn and to WANT to come to school. Abby is passionate about instilling a love for both learning and for school from the youngest age possible, and is incredibly excited to have the opportunity to provide the highest-quality preschool education within a warm and supportive environment.

What Teachers Mean to Me
