Welcome to the 1st Grade! My name is Kim Goodman and I am so excited to be in the most rewarding profession! I grew up in Oregon, GO DUCKS, and so thankful to be a part of the CTA Independence community! We are going to have a fabulous school year!

My Education and Professional Background

This will be my 11th year as a teacher. I started my career at Creighton Elementary School District teaching both Kindergarten and 3rd grade. Then I went to Chandler Unified School District to teach 3rd grade before heading to Oregon to help run a family business. Now I am back and anxious to start my 4th year here at Independence teaching 1st grade. I graduated from Northwest Christian University (Eugene, OR) with a major in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Elementary Education. In coming to Arizona, I also received an SEI Endorsement. I will continue to be a lifelong leaner by attending various trainings and taking graduate level courses.
