I want to be a cheerleader for my students who are not as fortunate and don’t have someone in their corner. I want kids who may be going through some unimaginable things in their home lives to know that when they come to school, I am happy they are there. I want them to know they have a bright future and that anything is possible. The kids motivate me to try new tactics, find new learning opportunities, and to stretch myself as a person. I do what I do to help them realize they are worth it!”

 

NORTHWEST ELEMENTARY
Lynn Goodrich – Pre-K and Kindergarten ELD Teacher, ELD Site Coordinator

Hometown: St. Louis, Missouri
College: University of Missouri and Wichita State University

“My view is that teaching is a mission. As I encounter a student, I consider the type of impact I want to have. What will I do today to add to the emotional health, education, or life experience of each child I encounter? You never know what kind of mark you will leave on someone’s heart, so it better be a good one!”
