Owner
Before parenthood, I was involved in advertising and marketing. As my quest for quality childcare became nearly impossible for my two children, I committed myself to creating my own school in 1997. After four years of site searching and development, The Goddard School in Portland opened with 116 students on the roster in October, 2001. Now, my children are adults but I have my community to serve for many more years.

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!
