Principal

Mr. JEFFREY HETRICK

It is a great privilege to call myself a Goodwin Eagle! I joined West Aurora School District 129 in the fall of 2013. I have served as assistant principal at Hill, Greenman, and Goodwin Elementary Schools and am proud and humbled to now lead the Goodwin Eagles in year #4 as building principal. My teaching experience includes 4th, 5th, 6th grade and dean of students within Chicago Public Schools.

I was born and raised in Michigan, however, I am a Hoosier at heart. I attended Indiana University to obtain my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Northeastern Illinois University to achieve my masters degree in Educational Leadership. I now reside in Oswego with my wife, three sons, and daughter.

I look forward to the continued work with the students, families, and teaching staff this year at Goodwin and District 129 to promote the joy, complexity, and curiosity of learning!

Mr. Justin McIntosh

It is my distinct pleasure to continue serving as the Assistant Principal at Goodwin Elementary as I move into my second year with West Aurora School District 129. 

Before District 129, I had a teaching career in Naperville 203 and Millwood Public Schools in Oklahoma City having taught 1st, 3rd,  and 4th grade as well as serving as an Instructional Coach specializing in K-5 data, literacy, and assessment.

Originally from southeast Kentucky, I received by Bachelor's degree from Eastern Kentucky University. After college, I moved and taught in Oklahoma City, which sparked a passion for educational equity and advocacy.  I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration from George Washington University. 

I currently live in Yorkville with my wife, our 16-year-old niece, and our dog, Otis. We enjoy finding new trails, kayaking, and overly complicated board games and escape rooms!

I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to continue to learn and grow alongside the amazing staff, students, and families at Goodwin Elementary. It’s always a great day to #BeAwesome!
