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.

Mrs. Marcela Astudillo began her teaching career in 2002 as a middle school teacher for the Providence School Department. Throughout her 16 years of classroom teaching experience, she has had the privilege to work primarily with the middle school students and has enjoyed this age group thoroughly.  Mrs. Astudillo's passion for her work in the classroom lead her to pursue and attain a Ph.D in education in 2015. Her research project focused on ELL academic resilience at the middle school level. For the past 8 years, she has served in the role of Teacher Leader at Roger Williams Middle School located on the South Side of Providence. Although she knows she will miss the classroom dearly,  she is excited to transition to administration and is both honored and excited to join this fantastic middle school Team at Goff!
