Both are involved in McKinney community outreach and philanthropy, passionate about hospitality and education, and proud to be a part of The Goddard School family. Robbin received a bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University, a master’s in journalism from the University of North Texas, and a master’s in early childhood education from Texas Woman's University, where she is in the doctoral program for child development and early education. Robbin spent 25 years in customer service, sales, and marketing and served as a Trustee on the Lovejoy ISD School Board 2012-2019. Rick runs Wells Group McKinney, owner of Rick’s Chophouse, Harvest Seasonal Kitchen, and The Grand Hotel. Robbin and Rick launched The Seed Project Foundation in 2015 to help fund small ideas with big goals to promote sustainability in our community.

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!
