Meet Alissa & Michael

Michael and Alissa Harritt are the proud parents of three children - two sons and one daughter, all of whom have attended the Goddard School. Alissa holds her Bachelors Degree in Sociology and Elementary Education from Mount Saint Mary’s University and started her career in Education in 2001. She always dreamed that she would one day open her own school. This dream began with being a preschool teacher, then an Educational Director and with the support and encouragement of her husband, her dream turned into reality in 2016 when they became owners of the Goddard School in Leander. She is excited to use her knowledge and experience to create a fun learning environment for your child every day! Michael has a strong background in finance and helping to successfully lead and manage organizations. He has been both a soccer and Tball coach for his children’s sports teams and is excited to become an active member of the Leander community and to see your children grow and learn at the Goddard School. Together, their goal is to make your family’s Goddard experience exceptional, fostering a love for learning in your child and creating an environment where they love going to school each day.
