Meet Paul and Natalie

On-site Owner
Paul's background is a blend of education and business management. In the early 2000s he was working as a general manager of movie theatres in the Portland Metro Area for Regal Entertainment Group. During this time he completed his B.S. in Business at Concordia University in Portland. Next his journey led him to graduate school to become a teacher. After earning his M.A.T.--also at Concordia--he became a licensed high school teacher in Oregon in the areas of Language Arts and Social Studies. After teaching for several years, Paul went on to further graduate study to become a literacy specialist. Paul's graduate program in literacy and thesis research reinforced the extreme importance of the first several years of life in terms of long-term learning and academic success. He was looking for a way to make an impact at the earlier ages. That journey led him here. Natalie also came from a hybrid of the business and education worlds. She holds a Bachelor's Degree from Portland State University in Child and Family Studies and Early Childhood Education. Along with working at the Goddard School she also is an active Substitute Elementary School Teacher. In addition to our business and education backgrounds, we are the proud parents of four sons ages 8 to 14. Our youngest son is a graduate of our school. We believe very strongly that our school is the highest quality educational experience in our area. We are proud to be a part of it.
