but my 6th grade teacher encouraged me to sing and play age 67, passed away on
at as many school functions as I could and that made a
huge impression on me. She was a real inspiration and the
reason I became a music teacher.
What is a favorite memory of your time in VASD?
My last concerts here at CV in April were very special
the students and staff showered me with notes and flowers
and so many kind words; I felt very loved and appreciated.
What are some of the top challenges facing educa-
tors today?
Meeting the individual needs of diverse learners with
ever increasing class sizes.
What will you miss about teaching?
I will miss the look on students faces when they have
played an instrument for the first time, or when theyve
laughed with joy during a movement activity or a sing-
ing game. I will miss watching them discover something
extraordinary about themselves when they try something
new. I think I will actually miss them saying, What are
you doing, Mrs. Doing? I will also miss my colleagues,
who totally rock. I work, every day, with extremely tal-
ented and caring people, and Im very grateful for their
patent support for our music program over the years.
Why are you retiring now?
I feel like its the right time to explore other opportuni-
ties and to see what life is like outside of school between
September and June!
What are your plans for retirement?
My husband and I have planned to go on Safari in
South Africa in August. After that Im looking forward
to expanding my garden, travelling more (especially in
the winter), and visiting more frequently with my Mom
in Connecticut and my kids in California, Minnesota and
here in Wisconsin.

Rita Goddard
Hometown: I grew up in Lone Rock. I live in Verona now!
Education: High school graduate
Position: Cook
School: Badger Ridge MS/Core Knowledge
Years in VASD: 19
What inspired you to get into education?
I wanted to work with kids. It was close to home, and it
allowed me to be with my kids during holidays and summer.
What is a favorite memory of your time in VASD?
All the funny things the kids have said to me in the past 19
years.
What will you miss about Food Service?
The kids and the staff.
Why are you retiring now?
I want to be able to spend more time with my family and
friends.
What are your plans for retirement?
Traveling to see parts of the United States that I have not
been to yet. Do whatever I want to do when I want to do it!!
