    Hello!  My name is Rebecca Pope, and I am currently teaching  English 8 at Krueger Middle School.  
    This is my first year teaching at KMS and my fifth year teaching for Michigan City Area Schools.  Prior to coming to KMS, I worked at Michigan City High School for four years teaching English 9 and 10 to Core, Co-taught, and Academic Honor students.
    Before working at MCHS, I was employed at Clifford Pierce Middle School in Merrillville, Indiana for 9 years. My assignments there included English 8 and Honors, Academic Intervention (7th & 8th grades), Language Skills and Strategies (7th & 8th grades), Fast ForWord instructor and coordinator (7th & 8th grades), ELL (7th & 8th grades), and Read 180 (7th & 8th grades).
    I am originally from Hobart, Indiana and graduated from Andrean High School (Merrillville, IN) in 1995. I attended Indiana University, graduated with high distinction, and earned a BS in Secondary English Education.
    I have 3 children: Derrik (24), Melissa (22), and Kaden (20). My hobbies include: spending time with family, reading, writing, shopping, traveling, watching movies, listening to music, attending concerts, playing word games such as scrabble, and winning BINGO!
    I am excited about working with the students at KMS and look forward to a successful school year with the class of 2024!
