In Mr. Gooden's own words...


My inspiration for being a teacher came from my mother who is an educator and my teachers who encouraged me to pursue my dreams. I believe that children are our future and that all students can learn to achieve success and strive in life. Each day I get the opportunity to make a positive difference in their lives by molding minds and hearts.
