Glenn Goodman has been a Mathematics teacher since 2004, when he started teaching in public middle schools. He is the proud father of two beautiful sons, Reid and Blake. Reid is a Queens College graduate, presently studying law at Touro Law School. Blake is a 12th grade student at Ardsley High School located in Westchester County. Glenn grew up on the North Shore of Long Island. His parents emigrated from Poland and Germany. They were among the fortunate children who were able to escape the Holocaust via the Children’s Transport. After graduating Hofstra University with a BBA in Management, he worked in his family’s wholesale bakery for seventeen years, then branching out on his own for several years before turning towards a teaching career.
The bakery business was something that he was very knowledgeable about, it just wasn’t making him content. In 2004, his former wife, who is a teacher, had suggested that Glenn try teaching, since he was very good with mathematics and children. It was then that he started taking courses for a graduate teaching program at Brooklyn College and worked as a middle school math educator. In 2006, he decided to work in the private school sector, securing a position with Magen David Yeshivah, where he was teaching enrichment math classes to gifted children in grades 2-5, transferring to the 8th grade after several years. Since Glenn started teaching, he enjoys going to work every morning, something that he didn’t feel before. He finds that being a good parent makes him a better teacher and being a good teacher makes him a better parent. Also, you can say that teaching is in his blood – Glenn’s maternal great-aunt was Sarah Schenirer, the founder of the Bais Yaakov School for Girls. The schools are located globally.
Glenn loves sports, participating and watching, especially when he is with his children. His favorite sports’ teams are the Miami Dolphins and New York Mets. He loves to cook and barbecue. He has a very good sense of humor.
