Mr. Joe
Joe Goethals

Hi!  My name is Joe Goethals and  I’m very excited to be a part of the Jefferson family and to begin the school year.

I grew up in Manitowoc County and now live in the city.  My wife, Rachael, is a nurse at a local hospital and we have two daughters who attend school in Manitowoc County.  Both of my girls are involved in competitive cheerleading and we spend many weekends traveling around the state attending their competitions.  When we have spare time, we usually spend it outside doing something together as a family.  I’m a huge football fan and follow the Minnesota Vikings religiously.

I work with two phenomenal paraprofessionals who are also both new to Jefferson.  Their names are Mrs. Barbeau and Mrs. l.  Both of these ladies are energetic and excited to begin working with students.  If you are in Jefferson, come to Room 109 to meet us or you can email me at
