    Ms Anna

    Lead Toddler Teacher
    My name is Anna Zaidel, and I am new to the early childhood development area of education, but not new to teaching! I have a master’s degree in mathematics and taught middle school Math in Uzbekistan (Central Asia) for almost 14 years. This age group is very cute (compared to preteens), and so I really love working with sweet toddlers! I have two daughters of my own, Kathy and Elizabeth, who are 11 and 14 years old. They both have a love of arts and crafts - maybe from me! My husband Mike and I love to walk our miniature dachshund sisters every day and enjoy traveling when we get the chance.

  •  Karen


    Preschool 1 Lead Teacher
    Hi everyone, my name is Karen! I’m so happy to join The Goddard School. I have 10+ years of experience working with children of all ages. I have always loved working with kids since I can remember. When I used to be in elementary school, I would always play at pretending I was a teacher. Being able to make a child laugh or teaching them something new is what tells me I’m where I should be. I’m always open to learning new ways of education. Building a healthy environment is required for the healthy physical and mental growth of every child. There is no better feeling than knowing you have helped to brighten a child’s day and seeing their priceless smiles while they learn something new. I believe compassion, patience, and love is key to help young children develop. Being able to make a difference in a child’s life fills my heart with joy. I look forward to what the future will bring for me and making long memories with your little ones.
