Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, I am Mrs. Goldenberg, your student's second grade teacher at Garfield School. I have been in the district for over 20 years. I first started as a substitute teacher, then a classroom aide, then as a 3rd grade teacher, and last as a second grade teacher. When our district went to Development Centers I started teaching second grade and that is where I am today. I grew up in Iowa on a farm and received my undergraduate degree at Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. After moving to the Chicago area I taught in Elmhurst as a third grade teacher and then as a fifth grade teacher. I stayed home helping to raise my children for 12 years. Once I went back to teaching I went back for my master's degree in education at Olivet Nazarene. I have continued teaching second grade at Garfield School. I am a prould parent of three children; two of which are married with 3 grandchildren, and I am proud to answer to the call of Nana!
I feel I bring experience and empathy to the classroom and look forward to working with each of your children to make them the best Garfield Citizens possible!
