Mrs. Jessica Goddard
Hi Bulldog Families,
This is Mrs. Goddard's 12th year as a Loudoun County Public School teacher. Eleven of those years have been here at Stone Bridge High School. She was part of the SBHS charter staff from 2000 to 2004, and then taught one year at Mercer Middle School. She returned to SBHS in the fall of 2012.
Her passion for teaching started when she was in high school when she had the opportunity to be part of a program similar to the teacher cadet program here at SBHS. She went on to earn a bachelor's degree in Education at the Pennsylvania State University in State College, PA, and then a master's degree in Special Education at George Mason University.
For the 2019-2020 school year, Mrs. Goddard will be co-teaching English 11A with Mrs. Taryn Gonzalez and English 9A with Mr. Kevin Winsheimer. She also teaches our self-contained English 9 & English 11 courses. In addition, Mrs. Goddard is a co-sponsor of PEER which is a student organization that mentors students at Bridge Bridge and Trailside Middle School, develops lesson for our Advisory block, and develops new initiatives to meet the needs of the current student body.
A personal note from Mrs. Goddard to Parents:
"I truly value my education, and I continue to learn about best practices for teaching all students, especially students with disabilities. However, I am also the parent of a child with an intellectual disability. She has taught me more than any textbook or training program ever could. I have sat on both sides of the "IEP table", and know how hard both teachers and parents/guardians work for students with disabilities. Your child matters!"
Let's have a great year, Bulldogs!
