What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Brooklyn Goodwin is a first-year teacher (BT) at White Oak Elementary School. Observing her in her classroom, you would never know that she is just beginning her teaching career! She is a very thorough planner, creative in her instructional delivery, focuses on teaching the whole child, integrates SEL into her content areas, collaborates with other educators, and makes her mark on every single student she works with.
