Jodi Goodman, is our 2015-16 Secondary Teacher of the Year and she teaches Reading at Ruth Cherry Intermediate.
Jodi believes, teachers should be the strongest student in the room. “We are facilitators of inquiry. We exemplify a passion for knowledge. Discovering differences and drawing from them creates community within the classroom.”
Jodi’s message as teacher of the year is, Giving up “me” for “we” requires humility. Being okay with the idea that no one person has all the good ideas. Using each other’s ideas and celebrating as a team. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn’t matter who gets the credit. We are All Bulldogs!
