Mrs. Roxie Goodman
Mrs. Goodman is a graduate of Bacon County High School, and has been a resident of Ben Hill County with her husband, Billy Goodman, for 20 years. Their family consists of 4 sons, 2 daughters and 9 Grandchildren and 1 Great Grandson. Mrs. Goodman has been involved in education, professionally and personally, since the mid 1980's. Mr. Goodman is retired after 32 years of employment with Fitzgerald Railcar and 10 years with Goodman Welding of Ocilla. Together, they enjoy fishing, hunting, watching sports events on television and most importantly spending quality time with their families in outdoor activities as well as indoor conversations such as sharing stories with them about their childhood days and being raised in the country. The Goodman's family beliefs are to carry on family traditions such as family reunions, attending church and annual "Dinner on the Ground" gatherings. Mrs. Goodman loves photography. Her favorite hobby is taking pictures of their families and friends and of the outdoors while fishing, hunting and nature in general. Through her experiences in education professionaly and personally, she has seen technology as the major change, even through photography. In summary, Mrs. Goodman says," in order to help our student's technology based academics, I have strived to keep up with these changes through Professional Learning and personal use. It too, requires consistent "hands on" use, like reading. No matter how the content is given to us, through Hardware (hard copy books, printed magazines, pc's, tablets, IPods), software (Notebooks, technology programs, Reading & Math programs, cross-curricular), ....we still need to read and/or listen and comprehend to be able to put the content to use."
