Weolcome to 7th Grade Language Arts! My name is Ms. Beodeker and this is my fifth year teaching at GCMS. I graduated from Montclair State University with my Bachelor's in English Education and am currently working on my Master's in School Counseling. In the past, I have also taught Language Arts in Wayne and Nutley, NJ. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, reading, and spending time with family and friends. As an educator, I strive to meet academic standards and challenge my students in and out of the classroom. In our classroom, students will develop critical thinking skills and explore a multitude of topics within literature and throughout individual writing. Please utilize this website to access our class syllabus, calendar of events, class files and links. If you have any questions, please email me and I will get back to you quickly. I look forward to a great year with you and can't wait to achieve great success with you in the classroom. Please know I am always here to help you succeed and grow as both a reader and writer. Have a great school year!
