MEET THE TEACHER!
Hi! My name is Ginger Goodwine and I am going to be your first grade teacher! This will be my 23rd year in the classroom. I began my career as a kindergarten teacher for 10 years and graduated up to first grade. I love teaching first grade and watching students as they grow and learn throughout the year.
I have a master's degree in elementary education and a Rank 1 in counseling. I love working with the students in both a whole group but especially in a small group setting. Mrs. Whisper, my assistant works with me in math and during our RTI time. This allows us to play math and reading games that help you learn phonics and math skills in a fun way. I love teaching these two subject areas helping you become a better reader and awesome mathematician!
I grew up in Larue County where I taught kindergarten for 9 years. I currently live in Elizabethtown with my husband Todd. I have two stepchildren Kirby and Cassie. Kirby is in his 3rd year of dental school at UL and Cassie attends college in Arizona. When we are all together we love to take trips, hang out, watch movies, and cheer on the WILDCATS!!
I can't wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you!!
