Ben Goodhue

Ben Goodhue was a model example of a dedicated, passionate, and driven physical educator who always strived to refine instruction, assessment, pedagogy, and provide the best developmentally appropriate physical education and health lessons to the student body at Beverly High School.

Ben always motivated, inspired and spoke passionately about the importance of responsibility, accountability, and respect from lessons centered around movement, diet, stress management, and practicing healthy habits. He was a proud citizen of Beverly, and leaves his wife Sarah and daughter, Maggie.
