About Ms. Goldstein

Hello! My name is Ms. Goldstein, and I will be your student’s English teacher. I am thrilled to be here, as teaching is a love and passion of mine. This is my second year with NBMS, and I am proud to be a unicorn. I graduated with honors from Texas State University with a bachelor’s in English and a minor in Secondary Education. I love to read, write, perform slam poetry, play the guitar, sing, and of course TEACH! I believe that every student in my class has something to offer to our classroom community. I put a large emphasis of multiculturalism in the literature we read so that my students gain exposure to multiple backgrounds and have the opportunity to connect with the characters they read about. My students have a significant amount of choice in the literature that they read. I’m in the business of creating life-long readers and individual, critical thinkers.   Education is a team effort, and I look forward to working with you so that we can do whatever it takes to help your student succeed. Please do not hesitate to reach out, I have posted my contact information below. I am free before and after school as well as during my conference period from 9:30-10:35 am.
