• Welcome to Our Class
    Welcome to English Language Arts 7th grade.  We will be using EL Education for our Language Arts Curriculum.  You will need to have your Student Workbook as well as some highlighters (blue, green, yellow and pink) and sticky notes.   We will have a anchor text with each of the Modules as well as related informational texts.  This class covers all areas of English Language Arts including Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, and Grammar.  
    I am using Schoology for daily announcements and for useful links.  Students will always have up-to-date information on what is happening in the classroom and what classwork or homework may be due.  Most work will be submitted through Schoology.  
    Please always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    I am pleased to begin my seventh year at Krueger Middle School.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in English from Rockford University and my Teaching Certification and Master's Degree from Valparaiso University. I have 20 years of experience teaching and have taught every grade of English from 7th grade to 12th grade. I am the Department Chair for Middle School English Language Arts and I am the Teacher Leader for EL Education.  Additionally, I am the advisor for National Junior Honor Society.
    I live in New Buffalo, Michigan.  My husband and I have one child who is attending Michigan City Area Schools and another who has just graduated from Valparaiso University.  We have two dogs and three cats - and countless chickens!
