Mr. Goldwasser

Welcome to

Mr. Goldwasser's Fifth Grade Class

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Penn State University with a degree in Marketing, I spent the first 17 years of my career in the bank marketing field. In 1995, I changed directions and decided I'd like to go into teaching, receiving my secondary education certificate from Grand Canyon University. Since then, I've had the opportunity to teach for 20 years -- almost all of them in the fifth grade. I also received a master's degree in educational leadership which enabled me to be both a middle school and high school administrator for 2 years.  My wife Dale retired recently after nearly 30 years of teaching fifth grade. My two sons Josh and Andrew have both graduated college and work in the computer and acting fields respectively. Aside from teaching, I love sports, in particular the Eagles, Sixers, Phillies, and Penn State sports. Other interests include walking my two Brittany Spaniels, surfing the net, and spending time with my family. Being respectful, fair, and consistent with my students, setting high academic and social expectations, and always maintaining a good sense of humor have been the keys to student success.
