Carol Gooden

Through the power of the Internet, I introduce you to one of our North Florida DEN members, Carol Gooden.

PhotoCarol Y.L. Gooden:

     Originally from Jamaica, I have the following academic qualifications: a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of New Brunswick, Canada; a Diploma in Education from the University of the West Indies; a Masters Degree from Columbia University in New York; and an Educational Specialist degree from Nova University.

I taught biology, chemistry and algebra at high school level in Jamaica and in St. Croix, U. S.  Virgin Islands for many years, and I have also served as a media specialist for over 30 years. Currently, I am the Distance Learning Specialist for St. Lucie County, Florida, where in 1993 I was honored as the county’s Teacher of the Year. In 1994, I was selected as a member of the Florida League of Teachers by the Florida Department of Education.

I am often referred to as the ‘Story Lady’ because for over 10 years I have hosted a television program on which I read children’s stories. Additionally, I serve on the Board of Directors for both Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Lucie County, and the AIDS Research Treatment Center of the Treasure Coast. I am also a vestry member and the organist for my church.

I enthusiastically recommend unitedstreaming to my colleagues as one of the best resources I have come across in my over 40 years as an educator. I particularly like the ease of use, and the fact that it provides resources for so many disciplines. My job responsibilities include training teachers how to use unitedstreaming, and I have also incorporated that training in a course that I teach at Indian River Community College where I am an adjunct faculty member.

    Yeah Carol! How fun to get to know you better through the DEN blog, and not just over email. I’m sure Danielle is delighted to have such a wonderful teacher and trainer in her region, to spread the enthusiasm for unitedstreaming!

    Carole you are such an inspiration! I look forward to networking with you more about your school districts implementation plan and how you have trained your teachers. The blog will help us to learn more about educators across the state of florida.
