    Tanya

    Owner
    My name is Tanya Glenn, and my husband, Jason, and I are the proud owners of The Goddard School located in Rockwall. We live in the local community and our two children, Madison and Champion, attend Rockwall ISD schools. Our relationship with The Goddard School began when we first enrolled Madison in the Toddler classroom. After a long search for the perfect school for our little one, we finally found The Goddard School and even though it was a bit of a drive, it was worth it for the education and socialization that The Goddard School provided. Years later, Champion also attend The Goddard School. Now both of our children are exceling at school, and we believe strongly that the foundation that both received from The Goddard School set them up for success. As parents, we experienced firsthand what an amazing school like this can do for our children, our community, and for helping to develop strong future leaders. That is why we wanted to bring The Goddard School to Rockwall. We would like to extend an invitation to you and your family to visit our school and see what makes us so special.

  •  Ashley

    Ashley

    Lead Teacher
    We are so blessed to have Ms. Ashley join us in the toddler room! Ms. Ashley is originally from Ohio, but just recently moved from New Hampshire, where she worked for another Goddard School. She was the lead teacher for the toddler two room, as they called it (24-36 months). Ms. Ashley has always done babysitting and caretaking for her younger cousins, family members and friends. Going into college, she knew that she wanted to do something that involved children. She originally started off in Elementary Education, but after transferring schools, she realized she enjoyed the younger ones and wanted to pursue child development. In May of 2020, she graduated with her Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Development. While Ms. Ashley loves working directly with children, she would love to become an assistant director someday, working her way up. Ms. Ashley & her fiancé also hope to be the owners of a childcare/school eventually. When asked what she liked most about working with children and toddlers specifically, she said “I love watching them grow and change. Throughout these months of their lives, they are experiencing and going through so many developmental milestones. I also love seeing how different each child is from one another, and what makes them unique.” Ms. Ashley’s favorite children’s author is Eric Carle and she loves showing his illustrations for her toddlers to see! We are excited to see all of the things Ms. Ashley will do in our school and we are grateful for her to be on our team!
  •  Kate

    Kate

    Lead Teacher
    We are so excited to have Ms. Kate join us in the preschool room! Ms. Kate has been working in the childcare industry for over four years. Her experience in childcare was working as an in-home nanny for local families who have children of all different ages. She also was a teacher at a local childcare facility in California where she taught pre-kindergarten age children. When working at that school she realized that she had fallen in love with the energetic and silly ways of children in that age group. When asked what she loved most about those ages, she said “I love to see how the children learn and grow in different ways and find ways to use their interests as learning experiences.” While Ms. Kate is going to school to get a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education, she loves to spend her spare-time getting outside and being active, as well as spending time cuddling with her cats, and playing fetch with her dog Hero. Mrs. Kate’s favorite children’s book is “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein. Her classroom goal is "to create an environment that children are truly eager to come into and learn". Ms. Kate is dedicated to focusing on important skills such as letter recognition and handwriting while making it fun and engaging for all of her students.
