STEM Star Jessica Goodman Wins KY AwardJames E. Farmer Elementary | Louisville, KY | Apr 22, 2022
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear congratulates Milken Educator Award recipient Jessica Goodman. "Teachers like Jessica have worked tirelessly to create new ways of learning for students," says the governor. "They are engaged and enjoy what Mrs. Goodman teaches because of the level of care and dedication she instills in each of her lessons. She works tirelessly to ensure every Farmer Elementary student achieves at a high level and is valued."
Standing with Jessica are daughters Evelyn and Margot, both Farmer students, and her father Jeff Faughender, a veteran photographer for the Courier-Journal who was assigned to photograph the assembly—without any idea that it involved national recognition for Jessica.
