Mrs. Goodwin has been teaching for 18 years.

Where have you taught previously?

“I started my teaching career at Narrows High School. Teaching History and Political Science. It was there that I found my passion for working with students who have special needs. This passion led my career to Raleigh County. I worked briefly at Marsh Fork High School, and soon after found a home at Beckley Stratton Middle School.”

What do you love most about our school?

“I love working in all school settings. I began my career at Beckley Stratton working in the inclusion setting. In pursuit of my Master’s, my fondness for teaching special need students led me to teach full time in a specialized classroom. I am very blessed to call what I do a job…it continues to be the most rewarding opportunity of my life.”

Is there a specific teacher that inspired you to become a teacher? 

“I was inspired to be a teacher, because I was blessed to have great teachers. There were many who inspired me, yet two teachers stand out the most; Mrs. Carol Roach, my ELA and Speech teacher in High School and Mrs. Williams my second grade teacher who gave me the gift of reading. Both of these ladies were more than teachers; they were role models of compassion, dedication, and integrity.”

What is the best thing about being a teacher in your opinion? 

“The greatest thing about being a teacher; is watching a child grow. With the job I do I am fortunate enough to have children for three years. My students often enter my classroom as young child and leave me as a young teenager. Many things transpire as a child grows educationally and physically. I witness them learn to read, write, and communicate more effectively; which ensure me that they will be okay. It is when they return years later, and they are contributing members of the community working and beginning to live their own lives, to stop by and say “thank you.” It’s inspiring to know, I made a difference enough that they come back to say “Thank you.”
