Meet  Temperance

Meet Temperance

Temperance has been working with children since 2010. She knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a teacher; her first-grade teacher made it exciting to come to school each day. From then on, she helped her teachers over the years and volunteered. For the past eight years she has primarily worked with infants and toddlers before stepping into the role of Assistant Director 3 years ago. Temperance is originally from California where she earned her Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education from College of the Canyons and her bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Adolescent Development from San Jose State University. When not at work she enjoys art, volleyball, and spending time with her family and her dog ZO. Temperance recently joined the Goddard team and is looking forward to helping the families and children. Her daily goal is to advocate for a safe and enriching environment for the children to grow and develop.
