Meet Jim

Jim, Becky (wife), Sean (son) and Rachel (daughter) are thrilled to bring The Goddard School to the wonderful community of Mount Juliet. Jim earned both a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and a Master’s Degree in Education from Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL. Becky earned a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Finance from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, IL. Jim taught high school mathematics for many years and is now very excited to own and operate The Goddard School. He is friendly and welcoming and maintains a family-centered approach to early childhood education. Jim is also dedicated to providing a warm, safe and secure environment conducive to learning, especially learning while having fun. In his free time, Jim enjoys traveling, snow skiing and spending time with family and friends. The Goddard School goes well beyond a typical daycare. It provides the highest quality preschool care, education and experiences.
