If ever there was a true Goodie deserving of an award, he would be Mr. Michael Woicicki. Mike served as the principal of Black Oak Elementary, Pinecrest School, and Twain Harte Middle School for a decade, prior to his retirement 3 years ago. His passion for helping people was apparent as he worked with the families and staff of the Twain Harte Long Barn School District.
We thought we would really miss him when he retired, but we don’t! He retired and took one year off, but he couldn’t stay away. Last year he returned to volunteer at THMS twice a week, every week, to help my students achieve success in math. He’s been here twice a week ever since! For two years now, he has volunteered 10 hours a week in my classes. He willingly cheers and mentors students on as they practice new math concepts. He works one-on-one with students who have missed a lesson, and he always makes us smile. He will do anything to help a child succeed – and his love of learning is transmitted to everyone at the school. As a teacher and then principal, he has nearly 40 years of valuable experience in education. Mike continues to benefit the lives of the teachers and students of THMS. He is the very definition of a great educator, and an extraordinary Goodie!
