Meet Heidi Goodmann: Middle School Math Teacher
We're thrilled to introduce Heidi Goodmann, our new middle school math teacher. Beyond her expertise in numbers, Heidi is a passionate runner, Rubik's Cube enthusiast, and talented artist. Read on to learn about the vibrant personality behind the math lessons.
Outside of school, how do you like to spend your free time? Any hobbies or interests you'd like to share?
“I love running, biking, walking my dog, playing with Rubik’s Cubes, and painting. I have had a few local art shows, and I participate in running events throughout the year. I’m not breaking world records with my mile time or Rubik’s-Cube-solving speed, but I enjoy both! My husband and I also like to travel every chance we get.”
Do you have any pets?
“My husband and I have one dog, Wallace, a 100-pound rescue. He is named after one of our favorite authors, David Foster Wallace.”
What's one of your favorite memories or moments from your time at Bosque School so far?
“One of my favorite experiences was the convocation ceremony in Sanchez Park. I enjoyed having the entire student body and staffulty gathered together as the strings class played — it was like being in a cathedral made of cottonwood trees.”
If you could give one piece of advice to your students, what would it be?
“I would encourage students to make space for the possibility that their lives and futures may diverge from their current imaginings. There’s no need to feign having all the answers before you truly do. Revel in the beauty that envelops you, express gratitude, maintain curiosity, and grant your interests and values the freedom to change as you deepen your understanding of both yourself and the world.”
