Welcome to CTE Early Childhood Education and Ed Professions
Hi, I am Alice Goodrick and I teach the Early Childhood Education and the Education Professions programs here at Combs High School. I love teaching teenagers and can think of no better way to spend my time than as a teacher. I am excited to be your teacher and am looking forward to a fun and adventurous year. I can't wait to get to know each of my students but let me tell you about myself first.
I am originally from Oklahoma but have lived in Arizona for 29 years. I love living in Arizona for the weather. This is my 10th year of teaching. I have only taught at Combs High School but I think we have the best school around. I love the classes I get to teach. We have fun in my classroom and get to do a lot of things you may remember from childhood.
I have been married to my first love for 32 years and would marry him all over again. I have four children(well 2 are step children but I clam them). My older kids are twins (I am also a twin) who turned 40 this year. Each of them have one son so that means I have 2 grandsons. You will here about them as the class goes on. I have two younger sons. One is 28 and the other is 26. They are great young men. The 28 year old has been married for 4 years.
I graduated high school in Bartlesville Oklahoma, got my Bachelor's degree in Home Economics from Oklahoma State University a long time ago. I worked as a Registered Dietitian for 20 years and then was challenge to do something I am passionate about. That is how I came to teach. After I started teaching I pursued and received my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University.
