Hello! My name is Marjorie Goosen. I am a 5th grade teacher. I went to MCC, then finished my teacher program at Indiana University at South Bend. I have a minor degrees in government, American and world history, geography, and sociology. My masters degree is in Library Science from Wayne State University. I taught in middle and high school in Indiana. I also had an opportunity to teach at Purdue, creative dramatics and computers. When I moved back home to Whitehall I taught at the middle school for one year before beginning to teaching 5th grade.
I am a newlywed. My new husband's name is Rich, but he isn't! Still, we have plenty of " riches" together. . . We each have 3 children and 2 fish. The fish live at home, but the kids all graduated from Whitehall and since have finished college. They are working out of the area following their dreams. We like to dance, but reading and playing golf aren't far behind. In the winter we cross country ski when time and weather permits.
I really love to teach, it is the greatest gift to watch a child learn and grow, sometimes the students that I have nurtured come back to help or just say hi. It is very rewarding to have this happen as it shows my students today, where they are going! I believe that the future is longer than the past . . . for all of us!
