About Me
Welcome to Seventh Grade Language Arts!  I am so excited to have each of you in my class this year.  I can't wait to get to know all of you and learn about some of your favorite things.  You will learn so much about me throughout the year, but I thought it would be a great start to share a few things here.

I'll start with my family.  I grew up in Berkeley Heights, so I am basically your neighbor!  I have two older sisters, Heather and Abigail, who are both teachers too!  This summer, we were so lucky to add another VERY important family member, our new little puppy named Bodie.  His full name is Bodie Biscotti Goldstein because his coloring is a lot like a biscotti cookie.  He is a Cavalier King Charles mixed with a Bichon and he only weighs four pounds!  My sister Heather has a dog too; her name is Bella and she is an 80 pound Chocolate Lab.  Bodie and Bella LOVE to have play dates and can always be found running circles around the house together or playing a fun game of tug-of-war (I bet you can guess who usually wins).  

This summer I've spent a lot of time at my shore house in Long Beach Island.  I love to go for long runs on the beach, cool off in the (calm) waves and go on the rides at Fantasy Island.  I can't believe how fast the summer flew by; it is so true that time flies when you're having fun and I'm sure you can all agree with that!  

I look forward to getting to hear about all of your fun-filled summer adventures!  For now, enjoy the rest of the summer sunshine and in the meantime, you can check out some pictures below that show a little more about me.
