Nancy Goodman, VP of Product
Nancy Goodman is vice president of product for Insight ADVANCE.
In this role, she leads the development of a web-based platform, the ADVANCE Suite, that uses the latest in audio-video technology to provide meaningful feedback to teachers through video-based observations, coaching and evaluations.
Nancy began her career in education in a charter school in Washington, D.C., teaching and developing social studies curriculum for middle grades. A passion for curriculum development led Nancy to iCivics, a non-profit that provides exciting educational video games for kids, supported by a robust curriculum for teachers.
Most recently, Nancy leveraged her experience in online content development into work on a team at the D.C. Public Schools that created a self-guided and responsive online training platform for observers.
Throughout her career, Nancy has observed and experienced the power that effective feedback has in inspiring personal and professional growth. She believes this transformative feedback must happen frequently, be personal and actionable.
Crafting this kind of feedback takes time, and Nancy believes that it is possible to utilize technology to increase the frequency of quality feedback that our teachers are receiving today. Through this transformative feedback, teachers feel supported in the work they do every day and continue to discover new ways to improve outcomes for students in their classrooms.
Nancy holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Lee University and a Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education.
