Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Goins

I was born on a farm in Indiana, and lived there until 4 years old. My family drove us to San Bernardino, California  and I lived in California until 1989. I began teaching in 1997, in Atlanta, Georgia. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Georgia. I received my master's from National Lewis University in Illinois.

 I moved to Illinois in 1998, and I have taught at VVSD since 2001. I have two grown sons, ages 27 and 30. My interests include traveling abroad and going to local events and festivals. One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is listening to live music. 

Currently, I teach team taught language arts 6th and 7th grade. 

 I look forward to working with your children this year.
