Mrs. Matia Goodwin

I am Matia Goodwin, and I am beginning my eighth year as the principal of Jackson School.  Camden is home for me and I love working in the community where I grew up.  I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education from South Carolina State University, a Masters Degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College and an Education Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Cambridge College.  This is my 20th year in education and I have loved every moment of it.  My experiences include teaching 3rd - 7th grade, teacher of the gifted and talented, curriculum coach and assistant principal.  I believe that every student can be a LEADER and it is our mission to Lead, Encourage, Achieve and Dream!

On a personal note, I am married to Bryce Goodwin and we have two children, Landon and Alyson.

This will be my 6th year at Jackson School as the Assistant Principal and my 23rd year as an educator.  Originally from Camden, SC, I am a graduate of Camden High School, Furman University (B.A. in History), and Converse College (M.Ed. in Secondary Education & Ed.S. in Elementary/Secondary Administration).  I have taught social studies for five years in high school, 10 years in middle school and 2 years overseas in an elementary/middle international school.  I have also coached middle, JV and varsity volleyball, basketball and softball.  I have been married to my husband Chris for 19 years, and we have two children:  Sarah, who is a junior at LEHS, and Seth, who is a 6th grader at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School.  I am so excited for the 2017-18 school year to begin and live our mission to LEAD, Encourage, Achieve, and Dream!
