My name is Becky Godfrey and I have loved reading and writing ever since I can remember. Two years ago, I became a librarian at Madison Middle School, and that is when I discovered that I also love being around middle schoolers. Nothing made my day as a librarian like showing an eager reader the book they were looking for or a hesitant reader a book that could open the door to a love of reading. As a reading and language arts teacher, I am eager to help students learn even more about the power of words, both their own and those of others.
I grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest city of Vancouver, Washington, where I loved exploring the coasts, mountains, and even the rainforest around my home state. After high school I moved to Rexburg, met my husband, graduated from Ricks College, and finished my degree at Idaho State University. I taught 4th grade for one year before taking some time off to raise our 6 children. My husband and I still have two teenage boys at home who keep us happy and busy.
I feel lucky to work with the wonderful students at Madison Middle School and to teach with Miss Judkins and Mr. Tanner. They care so much about their students and work hard to help them achieve their potential. It will be a great year on Team 5-1!
