He was my homeroom teacher for four years & my public speaking teacher for one.  One of my favorite teachers who I remember riding into our room on the 2nd floor on his motorcycle with a helmet on his head saying:  "This is an attention getter!"  So much fun to know him.

A thought after all these years.  The most prolific comment Mr. Goodman ever made

in my presence was "life is a flicker of conscientious".  So True!
