Meet Suzanne

I am one of the onsite owner's of The Goddard School of Toms River 1. I have my Bachelors Degree from Kean University with a double major in Psychology and in Education. I worked eight years for the Division of Youth & Family Protection investigating child abuse and neglect. I have volunteered as a soccer coach for the past 10 years and I also volunteer as a Cub Master for Pack 6 Cub Scout group. Much of my spare time is dedicated to children and our community. I believe the most important thing a teacher can do is look at each child as an individual. I thank you for putting your trust in our school.

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!
