3's Head Teacher
Mrs. Goodman has taught at the Co-op for 14 years. Prior to working at the Co-op, she worked as a preschool teacher in the city and in Guam, as a reading teacher at a clinic. She has a BA from the University of Rochester in psychology and education and a master's degree from New York University in reading and learning disabilities. She holds a NY State Certification in Education, Nursery-Grade 6 and in Special Education. What she loves most about the Co-op is that it provides a developmentally appropriate environment that nurtures the whole child and invites parents to be involved participants sharing in their child's education. She says, "It is a unique experience and there is a special bond that connects people who have been part of the Co-op." Mrs. Goodman has 5 children and they all attended the Co-op. As a parent at the Co-op, she served in every board position except for treasurer. In her free time, Mrs. Goodman enjoys Pilates, walking and hiking, enjoying theater and dance, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
