Welcome to Goodman! My name is Ugochi Emenaha and I am excited to begin my 1st year at Goodman and my 11th year in education! I have taught 4th-6th grade Reading and Writing, and served as Reading Coach and Dean at various schools in Chicago, Dallas and Houston. Although, I did not graduate from Fort Bend ISD, I did attend school in the district from Pre K- 10th grade. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Michigan and my Master’s in English Language Learning and Teaching (ESL) from Loyola University in Chicago.
As a Literacy Interventionist I work with a selected group of students to provide focused literacy support, and provide coaching and support to teachers on effective Literacy teaching skills. I believe that all students can learn and succeed at their highest level when given the support and guidance from committed educators.
When I am not working with students and teacher, I love reading, writing poetry, watching college football, and spending time with my son. My favorite children’s novel is The Watson’s go to Birmingham (by Christopher Paul Curtis) and Voices in the Park ( by Anthony Browne). My favorite team is The University of Michigan Wolverines—Go Blue!
