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 combines the latest research on teacher growth with robust technology to provide tools that support instructional growth through high-quality feedback.
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 knows that self-reflection and effective feedback require an investment of time, and believes that it is possible to utilize technology to accelerate professional growth by increasing the frequency of these touchpoints. Creating a strong culture of feedback in our schools ensures that teachers feel supported 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 Curry School of Education.
