Becky Goodwin currently teaches at Eudora High School in Eudora, Kansas, assisting deaf students with study skills and reading, and teaching math and science classes to special education students. Ms. Goodwin is a member of the Eudora School District Educational Technology Team. At the time of her Milken Educator Award, Goodwin taught science at Kansas State School for the Deaf, a residential pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade school in Olathe. "With the Internet, there are no sound barriers," said Goodwin, who used a wide range of technological equipment to help her students become part of the information community. Goodwin was also responsible for one of the OWLS (Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site) projects in the state of Kansas. The project was a model for this continuing program to help schools developing similar outdoor classrooms throughout the state. The several major grants she received allowed Goodwin to have a major impact on science education at her school.
Teaching is a life-long adventure and there is always more to learn. I hope to help more young people become interested in the field of education and welcome any discussion on the topic.
