My name is Heidy Zakaria and I have the pleasure of teaching the three-year-old classroom, Preschool 1. I have completed my formal education at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt with a bachelor’s degree in Education. I have been teaching for over 25 years and I love every minute of it! I am also a CDA (Child Development Associate) certified professional. I enjoy working, playing, and helping students reach their full potential and grow. I have two grown sons, one lives and works in Cairo, Egypt and the other is in Knoxville, TN.
Working at the Goddard School Ballantyne has been an awesome experience. The students are very motivated and excited to learn and spend time with each other. My co-workers and administrative staff are so friendly and supportive, which has helped create a pleasant environment for students to excel. I encourage parents to consider sending their students to our school because we always go the extra mile to ensure student’s safety and growth.
