On site Owner
Hello! My name is Ron Rowland, the honored and proud on-site owner of Goddard School Wappingers Falls, NY. I am originally from Long Island, and presently live in Westchester with my wife and our three children. After a successful 20-year career on Wall Street, I made an intentional pivot to be a teacher, coach, mentor and athletic director in New York City for more than a decade. I have a long-standing dedication and love for Lake Owego sleep away camp in the Poconos, as the program director. I believe in setting a formative learning, social and emotional foundation for all children in partnership with parental involvement. I learned that an equal balance of family, education, health, determination, and hard work are the cornerstones for wellbeing and future success. My wife and I felt an immediate connection to the Goddard Philosophy of fostering the love of learning while providing a safe, nurturing environment for children was the perfect fit.

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!
