Meet Mrs. Goff

8th Grade English 
Let's Have a SUPER Year!
     I am a University of Houston graduate.  Go Cougars! I received my Bachelor of Science degree in education in 1993 and have enjoyed many years of teaching.   1993 was a "big" year because along with graduation, I was married to my husband Jordan, and later we had two amazing children, Jordie, who is 19 and attending her second year of college at St. Edward's University, and Zane, who is 12 and an avid baseball player. 
     I taught science and language arts at Navasota Jr. High for four years, but I have been at B.B.J.H. since 1998 teaching reading, reading improvement, English, or language arts. Even though I live in Spring, Magnolia is my home away from home.  I feel so lucky to have found such a great school.  I am looking forward to having a Super year, so be ready to think, learn, create, and have some fun!
