    Utilizing my degree in Education from West Chester University I began my career with The Goddard School in Exton as a teacher in 2002. I then became the Director of Education for 5 years, before becoming an on-site Owner. As a mother of two Goddard graduates and an educator, I believe that providing children with daily experiences to grow and learn in an environment that supports the whole child is essential in creating life long learners! I truly love creating a family atmosphere here at Goddard!
