About Abby Goodale, Business Education at Middle/High School
My name is Abby Goodale, and this is my first year teaching at Spencer. I previously taught for 3 years in Muscatine, IA. I just moved to Wisconsin in June and I have been enjoying meeting new people and getting to know the area over the summer. My fiance and I have also been taking advantage of the many lakes by doing plenty of boating and fishing. I’m excited for the new school year and to become a Spencer Rocket!

Moving to the Spencer area begins a new chapter that my wife, Lynn, and I are eager to embrace. My teaching career began at Illinois State University, where I have earned degrees in English-Secondary Education and Philosophy. On a personal note, I enjoy snowboarding and cycling.
