Meet Adam

My name is Adam Heckendorn and I am the proud owner of the Goddard School of Tinton Falls. I am originally from California and moved to NJ in 1990. I have been married since 2000 to my lovely wife Mindi and we have three boys, Gregg, Jason and Jeffrey. I have been in the finance industry since 1983 and I was looking for something that I could be passionate about. When the opportunity came along for me to be part of the Goddard family, I did not hesitate. Once I met all the great families and teachers that make up the Goddard School in Tinton Falls I was so excited that I was going to be part of that team. I consider it a great privilege to be involved in your child’s education and growth and look forward to their success.

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
