Goff Middle School has three administrators.

  The principal is Mrs. Lisa Benedetti-Ramzi and the assistant principals are Ms. Cynthia Voss and Mrs. Liana Maris


Mrs. Lisa Benedetti-Ramzi started in Pawtucket in 2006 as Goff's principal. Prior to her taking the principal position at Goff, she was an assistant principal in Ponaganset and an English teacher in Coventry. Despite those previous experiences, if you ask her, she would say without hesitation that the years spent at Goff have been the most fulfilling in her career.  Goff is a wonderful place.  The staff is second to none and the students are remarkable. Goff is primed and ready to soar to new levels and achieve all that it strives to achieve.  It is an exciting place to work – there is no doubt you will feel the same way as you get to know what Goff is all about.

Ms. Cynthia Voss  has been an educator in the Pawtucket School Department for the past 20 years.  For the first few years she taught English at Jenks Junior High School.  For a short time she worked as  the At Risk Coordinator in Warwick to identify at risk students and create a program to help them succeed in the classroom so they would eventually graduate high school.  She came back to Pawtucket to serve as the assistant principal at Shea High for the past 12 years.  She is very excited to be back working in the middle school and especially working with the students and families at GOFF MIDDLE SCHOOL!

Mrs. Liana Maris began her teaching career with recently immigrated English Language Learners in Bronx, NY.  Mrs. Maris developed a passion for school administration and restorative practices together as she helped found a new international school and promote restorative approaches to school discipline within New York City public schools before moving to Rhode Island.  She is thrilled to bring her enthusiasm to the Pawtucket School Department and is ready to do all that it takes to support the social and academic growth of Goff's incredible school community.
