    In 1996, Goodwin began his career in education as a Kindergarten teacher at Richmond Drive Elementary School in Rock Hill, SC.

    Schools Superintendent George Hummer says, “Through an extensive interview process, it was apparent that Mr. Goodwin was well-equipped to fill this role. His past experience has shown him to be organized with a strong work ethic that will serve Frederick County Public Schools well as we continue to implement our strategic plan, Inspire 2025: A Promise for Progress and strive to move our school division forward. Even more importantly, though, was his consistent demonstration of being student focused, which is a critical component for this position.”

    Goodwin says, “I am excited to be named the Assistant Superintendent for Administration of Frederick County Public Schools. While participating in the interview process, it was very clear to me that Frederick County Public Schools puts students first in every decision and believes that trusting, positive relationships matter. Working where students come first, where people are cared for and where success matters, led me to apply for this position. I look forward to working with Dr. Hummer, the School Board, and the community to ensure our students, families, and all stakeholders learn, grow, connect and thrive.” 

    Goodwin has a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Winthrop University.
