    "I have been with the Goddard School at Robious Station for 4 years but have over 16 years of experience in the childcare field. Being a part of a school that promotes not just learning, but also the social and emotional development of children is so rewarding. When I'm not at Goddard, I'm probably with my own kiddo. I am the mom to a 13-year-old boy who is very active in travel ball so we are always on the go! We both share a love for baseball and traveling and have a goal of seeing all of the MLB ballparks together before he goes to college!"

    "I started at Goddard - Robious Station in 1998. Children have always played an important part in my life. I love watching when a child's face lights up when they know it is story time or music time and they are excited to participate. I love seeing the light bulbs in their minds shine as they learn something new. I feel what I do is a way of giving back to the community that I live in."

    Lead Teacher - Toddling Taxis
    "I attended Lynchburg College for nursing. I have now been working with children for about 15 years. My favorite thing about working with children is when a child learns or grasp a new concept or skill. I have been married for 11 years and I have 4 of my own children - two girls and two boys. I used to show and train horses and I still ride at my family's farm when I have time."

    Teacher - Terrific Tugboats
    "My favorite thing about teaching is the "small" wins that happen everyday in the classroom. I have been working with children professionally for about 4 years, and I've been a part of the Goddard team since February. I currently attend Virginia Commonwealth University for pre-dentistry, and I have dreams of opening my own dental office one day. Somehow, in my world of science and psychology, I fell in love with teaching toddlers. At two years old, everything is new, everything is amazing, and most importantly, everything is a learning opportunity! One of my favorite things to do is travel and explore the world through Scuba Diving."
