MS Math - Mr. Goffner
Hello and welcome to 7th Grade Math. My name is Mr. Goffner, and I am very passionate about helping my students to achieve their goals in math, including achieving the highest possible score on the state exam and achieving the highest possible score on the SHSAT so that they may get into the high school that they dream of. Myself being a graduate of Bronx High School of Science, I know what it takes for success on the entry exam. I received a B.S. from The George Washington University and an M.S.Ed. from CUNY-Queens College. I am currently in my third year of teaching at OWNCS and had four years of teaching experience prior to joining the OWNCS family. I am having an excellent time and will stop at nothing to make a positive impact on the school and on the community.
