Meet St. Cecilia Principal, Mike Goedde

This is my 13th year at St. Cecilia. I have enjoyed my 31 years in education both at the administrative and teaching levels. I received my bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University and my master’s degree in Administration from Xavier University. 

I feel fortunate to continue to be able to teach. Although I enjoy being a principal, my favorite part of my job remains my time in the classroom. I attribute my ability to manage teaching and administrative responsibilities to having a great staff. The fact that my Assistant Principal and I both teach, I believe, keeps us well grounded, allows us to better identify and understand the challenges that teachers confront, and gives us a good pulse of the culture within the school, all of which help to shape the vision for the school going forward.

My wife Marie and I reside in Loveland, Ohio. As empty nesters, we are looking forward to many years of travel and adventure in the years to come. In my spare time, I enjoy landscaping and gardening, travel, hiking, reading, birding, history, and all too infrequently, golfing.
