Hello My Name Is...

Olivia Goodyear


Education: Miami University, 2016 Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and a Minor in Special Education. Cleveland State University, 2017 Reading Endorsement. 

I was raised in Hudson, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland). After graduating high school, I attended Miami University (of Ohio) where I received my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. I had many wonderful experiences while at Miami, including observing and studying classrooms in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Italy. After graduating, I worked as a supplemental reading teacher in Ohio while I studied to earn my Reading Endorsement and work toward my Master's in Curriculum Development and Instruction with a Focus in Literacy. I moved to Bluffton this summer to start my first year as a third grade teacher, and I could not be more excited to live in this beautiful place! In my free time, I enjoy reading, running, baking, and being outside!

My goal is to prepare my students to become life-long learners by teaching them to love learning through challenging them to reach their full potential every day!
