  •  Noran


    Hello, my name is Mrs. Noran, I was born in Kabul, Afghanistan and have lived in Uzbekistan and Canada before moving to NJ with my husband. Here is a fun fact about me: I love Montreal. I am excited to begin this journey with enthusiasm. Living in different parts of the world has given me the opportunity to learn six languages in which I’m fluent. English, French, Turkish, Hindi, Uzbek and Farsi. I have a degree in photography and videography and I owned my own studio in Montreal. I also worked as a teacher's aid and that’s when I discovered my love for children even more. I enjoy their interactions with adults and I am amazed to see how broad their imaginations are. I strive to make a difference and add my part to The Goddard School for a collective success. I look forward to a great year with the entire team!
  •  Ria


    Hi I am Ria. I have done my Masters in Arts & I hold degrees in Pre-primary teaching and Child Psychology. I migrated to this beautiful country in 2019. I truly believe in the famous quote by Jess Lair that says ‘Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded’. I am at my best when amongst children. I love to see their curious faces when they are introduced to a new concept for the 1st time. I am truly honored to be a part of this wonderful Goddard family that prides itself in creating gems for the future.
