Rob Goodnow

Rob Goodnow has been in the teaching
profession for the last forty years.  Thirty seven of those years he has been dedicated to touching the lives of children here in New Canaan.  From 1973to 1998 he was a science teacher at West Elementary School.  In 1998 he came to Saxe Middle School and has been a 7th grade science teacher ever since.  Throughout his years Rob has enjoyed coaching students in the classroom as well as outside of the classroom.  He is a positive, upbeat individual who makes the time to check in and communicate with students and his fellow teachers alike.Rob is a teacher at heart.  He has a genuine satisfaction when he sees students actively engaged and excited about learning.  He is able to find something good amongst the chaos of an average teaching day.  He is especially fond of hearing about the success of former students.  Throughout his career, he has learned how to slow down and no longer tries to accomplish everything all at once. Rob is ready to enjoy retirement.  You will probably find him on the golf course swinging his clubs.  He also has a deep interest in music and photography.  He is extremely active and does not plan on slowing down anytime soon!
