Emilie Goodman

Elementary Principal

Emilie was raised in a God-loving family in Montreal, Canada. She had the privilege of attending a Christian school where she discovered at the young age of 7 that she wanted to be a teacher. She fondly remembers the times in her life when she would ask her father a million questions about God. Through the years, God continued to reveal Himself to her through life-changing mission trips to Europe and Guatemala. It was there she discovered first-hand that living her life for God was indeed the most exciting life she could ever hope for. 
After teaching in public schools in her hometown, Emilie felt that God was preparing her for new opportunities. She decided to step out in faith, and she moved to beautiful San Diego in July 2008. Since then, she has been amazed at God’s faithfulness on a daily basis and feels incredibly blessed to have joined a great team at the Rock Academy. Emilie was the 5th grade teacher at The Rock Academy for 5 years before becoming the Elementary Principal. Each year she looks forward to partnering with families and staff in growing God’s kingdom through Christian education. Her favorite part of her profession is the freedom she has to share her passion and enthusiasm for learning and to inspire students to pursue God’s perfect plan for their lives.

“Do not lose the courage you had in the past, which has a great reward. You must hold on, so you can do what God wants and receive what He has promised.” Hebrews 10:35
