His father, Leslie Francis Goodman, was a postal worker who died of a heart attack when Goodman was two years old; his mother, Virginia Roos (née Loosmore), was a waitress at Jack and Phil's Bar-B-Que, Goodman went to Affton High School, where he played football and dabbled in theater.

At parties and family gatherings, the children are usually just drawn to me, so I spend most of the time playing with them and keeping them occupied while the parents are off relaxing. A little about my babysitting background: I have nannied for a family with 3 children ages, 4, 11, and 13, I nannied for this family for 3 years in a row.

Being around kids is nothing new to me, and I love being a fun and positive influence. I have worked at summer camps with kids with special needs. I have done grocery shopping and other type errands for families I have nannied for.

He earned a football scholarship to Missouri State University (then-called Southwest Missouri State University, or, "SMS") in Springfield, Missouri.

With a small bankroll from his brother, Goodman found an apartment near the Theater District and unsuccessfully tried to make money as a bartender and waiter.

I'm also a Big Sister in Springfield's Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

I've always enjoyed caring for children, and I welcome any opportunity to help them learn and grow.

I care for infants as young as 4 months old, and assist in the toddler and 2's & 3's rooms as well.
