Michelle Goodwin holds degrees from Liberty University and the University of
Virginia. She teaches courses in curriculum and instruction and serves as the Coordinator
for the Elementary Education Program at LU. 

Michelle views her teaching position as a gift from God, a provision to serve Him and His
children. She believes that teaching is a calling and her purpose as a teacher educator
is to fully equip candidates with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they will need
to educate an increasingly diverse population. 

Michelle enjoys traveling to historical sites but more than anything loves to spend time
with her husband and son.
