Meet Shanna

Being involved with enhancing the lives and education of so many families here at The Goddard School is such an honor and so rewarding. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Communication as well as Elementary Education. I’m a certified Elementary Teacher (K-6) with an Early Childhood Education certificate as well. I’ve spent many years in the classroom teaching as well as in school administration as part of a management team. As the On-Site Owner of The Goddard School located in Downtown Pittsburgh, I am dedicated to providing your children with a quality, loving, hands on, exciting learning environment! I await the opportunity to welcome you and your family to the Goddard family. “The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.” Loris Malaguzzi

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!

We work tirelessly to ensure children thrive in a healthy, safe and warm environment. Within this secure and nurturing environment, children can discover their unique gifts.

Our programs go beyond academics and help children develop important social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, responsible decision making and more.  

In our classrooms, creativity and curiosity blossom as children discover the wonder of learning. Through fun learning experiences (F.L.EX.®), your child will develop academic and social-emotional skills that will help them feel ready to take on the world.
