Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Goodrich. I graduated from Estancia High School in Costa Mesa in 2003. After that, I attended Orange Coast College until I transferred to CSULB in 2005. I graduated from CSULB in 2007 with a B.A. Degree in English Education. I followed that up with a Single Subject Teaching Credential in English from CSULB in 2009. Realizing I am a nerd for education, I went back to CSULB in 2013 to work on a Masters Degree, and graduated with an M.A. in Education, Curriculum and Instruction in the Spring of 2015.
Currently, I have been teaching English for 9 years, spending 8 of them at Century High School. I serve as the ELA Department Chair at Century, and am a member of both the e-Business and TEACH Academies on campus. Additionally, I am the Speech and Debate Team Coach for our traveling team of competitors. In past years, I have taught Journalism and was the advisor for the National Honor Society.
When I'm not teaching, I spend too much time reading comics. When I'm not reading comics, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son. Okay, I'm kidding. I definitely like my wife and son more than comics, but it is pretty close.
