    Welcome to the Goddard School at Cherry Hill! I proudly serve as the on-site owner of the School. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Accounting from City University of New York, Brooklyn College as well as a Master's degree in Finance from Wagner College. I enjoy being active in the community and have coached both little league baseball and my son's YMCA basketball team along with participating in my daughter's equestrian activities and events. I am the father of three children and recognize the importance of a safe and nurturing learning environment. My family and I enjoy sports, biking, and vacationing together in the Poconos and Florida. I have been a resident of the Mercer County area for over twenty-five years and am happy to be able to provide Goddard's outstanding program to the children of this community. I would like to extend an invitation to your family to visit my beautiful school in Cherry Hill, introduce you to my incredible faculty, including an Educational Director, and tell you about Goddard's FLEX Learning Program, STEAM, and 21st Century Learning.

    A few fun facts about me - I love camping, singing, crocheting, reading. I also love flowers, but I can never seem to keep them alive, so I am not much of a gardener! I sing with my church choir and the Brookdale Concordia Chorale. I hold a Master's degree in Educational Leadership and have been an NJ state certified teacher for over 20 years. As for my family, I have been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband (we've been friends since the 5th grade!). We have 2 children, one who is in college and one Goddard Alumni, and we are tremendously proud of both of them. We also have a sweet 6 year old lab rescue pup! I love working with children and seeing their bright, beautiful smiles each morning. I want each child in our school to feel loved and welcomed when they walk through our doors. I would like the families of our school to know that they can be confident knowing that their children are in a loving, nurturing, and safe environment.

    Substitute (Admin and Classroom)
    A little about me - I enjoy reading and do a lot of crafting that I sell at craft fairs over the weekends. I also LOVE dinosaurs! I am happily married and a mother of three children ranging in ages from 12 through 21 years old. I hold my Childhood Development Associate's Degree and have been a professional early childhood educator for over 15 years. I believe that the most important thing an educator can do is nurture their children. My families can rest easy knowing that their children are safe with me and that their child will have fun learning. My students know that they are loved from the moment they step foot in my classroom and they can make a mess to have fun! I love seeing the faces of my students when they finally understand what I am trying to teach them!

I have had a passion for early childhood education as it brings me joy to teach and care for our children. As an art major, I am excited to put all my experience to use for the kids. I enjoy singing and am very happy to introduce the Korean language to our children! I want my students to feel loved when they are in my care. I run a happy and fun classroom and I try to create an environment that they want to come to everyday! I want my families to trust that my classroom is a comfortable and safe place for their children.
  •  Betty


    Infant Room Teacher
    I have been a teacher with Goddard since 2006 and have been working with children since 1997. I love being with children and you can often find me singing to the them - my favorite songs are "You Are My Sunshine" and "Down by the Bay"! I also love reading and talking to our babies. The best rewards come in the form of toothless smiles and full belly laughs! A little about me personally, I enjoy reading and bird watching. I also love spending time with my family and pets! I have three grown children of my own and 8 wonderful grandchildren. It is gratifying to teach these beautiful babies and to watch them grow, and I love when they stop by to say hello as they go through the years here. I want our families to know that their babies are well, taken good care of, and loved while they are in my care.
  •  Peggy


    Infant Room Teacher
    I am proud to say that I have been with Goddard since 2009. After leaving work to raise my children, I wanted to take my life experiences as a loving mother and grandmother to the classroom to provide our babies the best experience. No one can truly replicate the love of a mother or grandmother, but you have my word that I do my best to try. No matter what, the babies in my room come first. I believe it is important to work with families and take each parent's request seriously. I take great pride and joy in trying to provide care that is consistent with the type of care the child receives at home . I love that it is my job to make sure our youngest children are happy and loved.

    A few fun facts about me - I like to write stories, play video games, and watch anime. I Have a large and crazy family and am even a great aunt! I was adopted and my adoption was finalized on Valentine's Day. For me, kids are very fun to be around. They just brighten up my day! I want all of my students to feel safe and loved. I want them to feel like they are in the arms of a loving aunt when they are in my care. I would like my families to feel at peace when dropping off their children with me - knowing that their little one will no longer be crying even if they had a rough drop off and will they will have a fun, safe day.
  •  Dionna


    Assistant Preschool One Teacher
    I enjoy writing poetry, nature walk and hikes, going to local art events, drinking tea, and eating sushi (haha!). My family is black and Taiwanese, and we are a creative, vibrant, and wise bunch! I've learned a lot about community from my family and we spend a good amount of time together. I studied Shakespeare abroad in London and absolutely loved it. I am also a big fan of cartwheels! Children crack me up and warm my heart. It's incredible to build unique relationships with these tiny people and watch them discover, grow, shift, and change. I want our students to know that they are loved and capable! It is important to me to build trust and make a connection with the families in our room. I love being able to send them to work with a sense of comfort that their children are receiving the best of me every day.

    A few fun facts about me - I enjoy drawing, painting, music, and fashion/design. I am engaged and have 2 cats, Bella and Levi. Most people don't know that I was in a band and can speak three other languages conversationally (Spanish, French, and Korean)! I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. Working with children is the most rewarding experience! You truly impact a child's life by helping them grow and learn - it's an incredible to be part of that process! I want my students to know that they are loved and that I will do anything I can to help them to succeed. Parents can feel reassured that I will prioritize their child's safety and their success. Each of my students hold a special place in my heart.
