• Welcome to Ms.Bair's website for 2022-2023
    Welcome to Ms.Bair's website for Resource for 7th grade, and thank you for visiting.   This year I am providing Resource services for all 7th graders with special educational needs.  In Resource, students will be receiving additional support with math skills and goals, Language Arts skills and goals, and they will also receive accommodations in Resource as needed (tests read, extra time, etc.).  I am also available for students that may need a quiet place to complete their work or a place to gather themselves or regain composure when frustrated or feeling overwhelmed.  I am also the Teacher of Record (TOR)  for any 7th grade student with an IEP, so if you, as a parent, need anything or have questions, please reach out to me via email or by phone.  My email is kbair@mcas.k12.in.us   and my phone number is 219 873 2061 extension 7434.  I hope we all have a great year!
  • Meet the Teacher
    My name is Kathleen Bair, and I have been teaching for MCAS since 1999, after graduating from Purdue.  I am a student support services teacher and have taught multiple subjects from Math to Language Arts to Social Studies.  I have taught middle school for most of my 24 years, predominately focusing on 6th, 7th, and 8th-grades but have had a little experience with 9th grade.   Currently, I am the Resource the teacher for 7th graders this year.  I love to read, when I have time, and I also like to play the piano.  I also enjoy writing and push to have students become better writers, focusing on expanding their vocabulary, not only in their writing but also in their everyday speech.
     I have one son, a graduate from MC High School and graduating Cum Laude in Political Science from Knox College in Galesburg, IL.  I also have a new daughter-in-law. I am an animal lover and have more feral cats running around my country home than I care to count.  I am a huge Ghost Adventures fan and love anything related to the paranormal, aliens and Bigfoot.  I have been a resident of Michigan City all my life and am happy that I can give back to my community through teaching.  I love to teach and hope that I can instill in your children the desire to learn.
