Darlene has over ten years of experience as a Director. She has accumulated more than twenty years of experience in the educational field, working with children of all ages. Prior to this new adventure, she held an integral position within Katy ISD, for 15 years. When the opportunity presented itself, for her to serve as a leader for The Goddard School, she readily accepted. At the age of forty, she returned to college to complete her university studies, while directing a Montessori school, twelve hours a day and raising her family. That is proof that people can do anything they put their mind to. Using that determination, she simultaneously, attained her Director's License and her Bachelor’s degree in History/English Language Arts from the University of Houston. Together, with her husband Frank, they raised three remarkable sons, Nathan, Matthew and Frank. Once Darlene retires, her goal is to finish writing a children’s book she has started. She is thrilled to be a part of this team!
