Ms. Goodwin is a fictional character in the Regents Walk comic series. She is an employee of Dorkus Withnail Valley College of Art, instructing special educational programing for the community, as well as a former drama student. She is currently working on her one woman play.
Ms. Goodwin has lived in Widow's Perch her entire life, except for a brief period where she lived in New York trying to make it as an actress. She is often uncharacteristically silent on these years, but does claim to have been "enlightened" about the world of theatre and has brought her methods home, much to the chagrin of her coworkers and students. She might be a rather inept teacher (and person), but she makes up for it in... Hm. Teeth?
She appears early in Big Blue, coming to Widow's Perch Elementary to fulfill her duty as a special programs instructor and directing the first grade Thanksgiving Play. She helps introduce the class to the audience, but seems to have little actual regard for them, Prissy especially. After making Ethan the star of the play, she later approaches him as he waits to be picked up and even offers him a ride home, saying that it's okay to ask for help. But he declines.
During the first rehearsal scene later on, she indulges herself in seeing the kids recite their lines. She makes her apparent scorn for Prissy visible again when she lets her change roles—from the turkey, to the turnip, neither of which gives her any lines. She allows Adrian to become the new turkey, and then gives Ethan a wink as Mrs. Hambridge picks the class up.
She is next seen during a rehearsal, where she chastises Adrian again for giving the turkey a speaking role. Once he is removed from the stage and she congratulates the other kids for doing a "good" job, she is forced to confront Aubrey's Dad when he comes in with the principal. Failing to understand his overreaction, she watches powerlessly as he removes Aubrey from the play. Determined to keep the play a reality instead of letting it be ruined by the incident, she quickly recasts Arlo into Aubrey's role.
