Peter P. Goodnow

Departments and Positions:
Social Studies Teacher
School Extension 4093
In his time at Episcopal, Peter has built on past professional experience as a CIA analyst to develop classes and teaching approaches that utilize Washington’s physical and human resources to provide his students with unique educational opportunities. In a typical year, students prepare reports of current global issues for presentation to officials from the U.S. Government, discuss legislative matters with members of congressional offices, and analyze political trends with operatives from both major parties.

In his US history courses he seeks to empower his students, collectively and individually, to analyze the past in ways that reflect their personal outlook and values. Peter is the official announcer for the Episcopal football, basketball, and lacrosse programs. He enjoys reading, current events, and the outdoors. Peter resides on campus with his wife, Catherine; their children, Lizzie and Ned; and their two dogs.
