Mr. Goodman was an English teacher and sticks in my mind primarily because of his humor. He was a great deadpan artist and had these brief witty remarks that you could miss if you weren't paying attention, especially just before the class got started. Taking papers out of his briefcase he'd peer intensely down to the bottom and crack half out loud, "Whoa, there a Snickers bar way down there. That will come in handy later!" You had to pay attention in life - stop talking and observe. That was Mr. Goodman's lesson to me.
