Subjects Taught

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Carson-Newman College.  My Master's Degree is in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Tennessee. I received my Educational Specialist Degree in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University.


I taught kindergarten and second grade at Alpha Primary for 7 years.  When I had my son in 2004, I took a leave and was a stay-at-home-mom.  During this time, I worked part-time for Carson-Newman College as a College Coordinator for student teachers. I began working at John Hay as the reading teacher in 2007. 


My name is Niki Goforth. I work daily teaching reading to small groups of K-5 students. Emphasis is placed on vocabulary, phonics, fluency, and comprehension.  It is a joy to see children excited about reading.
