Madeline Goodwin received her Master’s in Environmental Studies from The Evergreen State College in 2016, with a thesis on climate change in state science standards, and her Bachelor’s of Science with a dual major in Environmental Studies & Biology from Southern Oregon University in 2014. As a student at SOU, she began offering tutoring to her classmates, and later to high school students and undergraduates, specializing in (but not exclusively working with) students who are gifted, twice-exceptional, or differently-abled learners. She has been teaching for GHF Online, an online education program that provides small online classes for neurodivergent children, since Spring 2015. Since then, she has offered a variety of classes in environmental sciences, biology, civics, and critical thinking. In August 2017, she was promoted to Director of GHF Online Classes.

When she is not working with, in her words, “the coolest kids on the planet,” Madeline enjoys reading, fiber arts, hiking, swimming, board games, spending time with her family, and snuggling and playing with her cats. Her favorite books include Harry Potter, S.M. Stirling’s Story of the Change, and anything by Tamora Pierce; she also likes nonfiction on just about any subject, but especially history, economics, and science. She knits, crochets, sews, and sometimes spins and does cross-stitch. Settlers of Catan, Set, Master Mind, and Monopoly are her favorite board games. She believes cats are preferable to humans in just about any context.
