3) Office Hours: 8 - 10 am; 2 - 4 pm each week day (This means I'll be glued to my computer during these times in order to answer your questions ASAP). 


First things first - it is a true pleasure to be working as the 8th grade MIT-e teacher here at Sinagua Middle School! This is my 5th year as a teacher after having graduated from Frostburg State University with an MAT degree in the spring of 2015. For the 6 years prior to my student teaching, I was a BS/MS student in Environmental Biology where I taught several undergraduate lab courses at the University of Maryland - and here is where my true allegiance lies. Go Terps!
As a recent transplant to the state of Arizona from Maryland (where I was born and raised), I am still in the honeymoon phase and will probably continue to be with all the great outdoor activities available. In my spare time I love to ride my horse Lucky, hike the local trails with my husband and dog, and explore downtown Flagstaff. I enjoy playing piano and ReadySetSpaghetti. 
Please feel free to send me a message with any questions or comments you have about this upcoming year. I am so looking forward to this adventure! If you'd like to visit my website for updates on homework, schedules, quizzes, etc., just click here: Mrs. Goodley's Science and Engineering Class
