  •  Ruth


    Miss Ruthie (or Miss Rue / Rutie as her children might call her) has been working with us at The Goddard School since May of 2021. Previously she could be found working around the building, drawing pictures on the walls as one of our very talented muralists. Miss Ruthie works in our Preschool (Bear) room, where she puts her degree in Fine Arts and Education from the University of Cincinnati to good use. She loves her kids and is always teaching them fun, and engaging information both about art and other topics. In her free time she loves working on murals and other forms of art.
  •  Karen


    Miss Karen is the dictionary definition of a seasoned educator. Having worked in the school system for more than 35 years, she knows full well what it takes to nourish growing minds, and take ownership of a classroom. With a degree in Early Childhood Education, she is the perfect person to take the reins of our Pre-K classroom, sharing with her other teachers and the students her years of valuable knowledge. Miss Karen has been with our Goddard School for more than a year now, and we look forward to the many wonderful years to come. Our school would not be the same without Miss Karen, and we smile a little brighter every morning knowing that she is here with us.
  •  Nichole


    Miss Nichole (or Miss Cole as her children sometimes call her) is a wonderful educator, and one of the most energetic, loving and enthusiastic individuals you will ever meet. She always begins each day on her best foot possible, with a "Can Do" attitude that only a cup of coffee can replicate in others. Having been with The Goddard School for more than 5 years, and with our location for more than 1 year, Miss Nichole is the perfect person to have assisting in all of our young toddler classrooms. Her knowledge and persistence is unrivaled. Not only are we lucky to have Miss Nichole in our school, everyone is lucky to have her in this world.
  •  Stephanie


    Miss Stephanie is a seasoned educator with years of experience, having helped raise not only Miss Sam's children, but three of her own wonderful kids as well (who you may find hiding amongst our friends here at The Goddard School). With a degree in Theatre Performance, Miss Stephanie brings the best out of her classroom, and the best out of the children in her care. Who else would there be to "direct" the flow of the room, and "shine a light" on her superstar babies! Working in the infant room brings Miss Stephanie immense joy as she gets to "perform" the role of Lead Teacher every day, putting smiles on every baby's face.
  •  Scott


    Mr. Scott is an incredible member of our Goddard family, and the most artistic member of Miss Sam's family. Growing up around, and working in Goddard Schools for the past 17 years, Mr. Scott has a wealth of knowledge that is invaluable to our school. Having worked as an educator, an art director, and the proprietor of his own antiques business, Mr. Scott has found a home here at the Goddard School once more. He brings a great joy to all of his coworkers, and every child he greets with a "Good Morning". We are incredibly lucky to have Mr. Scott working with us everyday.
