Experience: Roy Goodale joined the LearningWorks YouthBuild team as the Construction Teacher in the spring of 2021. He brings to LearningWorks many years of experience both in construction and in youth development. Roy grew up in Maine, learning finish work early on as the son of a cabinet maker and attending the University of Southern Maine. He has worked as a woodworking and music instructor for a number of organizations both in Maine and out west, while also continuing to work in construction and maintenance roles. For the last 4 years, Roy has worked at the Ironwood School in Morrill, Maine. During his time at Ironwood, Roy worked directly with young people in various capacities and also helped to develop and manage a new transitional program for older students. In his spare time, Roy built his own house solo from the ground up, hiring out only for the septic work! After selling that home, Roy now lives in Auburn where, among other things, he is working on converting his barn into a music studio.
