Owner
I have been the original owner of The Goddard School (Polaris) since its construction in 1999 and I'm an on-site active presence in the school daily. After earning my Bachelor’s degree from Miami University in 1994, I marketed technology used for education for DataBeam Corporation, Lotus Software, and IBM's eLearning division. I am the principal of this charter school. The Goddard School (Polaris) operates both as a private preschool and a non-public charter elementary school under the Ohio Department of Education. I have an amazing wife, Teresa, and two talented and beautiful step-daughters, Breia and Mariah. My wife excels in real estate (teresapowellsellshomes.com), Breia is a property manager and Mariah is a full-time student at Columbus State and The Aveda Institute. We all enjoy a very active business and family life. We are excited to be expecting a grand daughter this November that will join the Lily Pond classroom in 2020!

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!
