• Welcome to Our Class
     
    Welcome to English Language Arts 7th grade.  We will be using a pilot program for a new Language Arts Curriculum - EL Education.  We will be working with novels as well as short stories. This class covers all areas of English Language Arts including Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, and Grammar.  
     
    I am using Google Classroom 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.  From time to time students may even submit classwork or homework on Google Classroom.  Each class period will have its own Google Classroom code. 
     
    Please always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    Mrs. Vicari

     
     
    I am pleased to begin my fourth year at Krueger Middle School (although I did student teach here for a few weeks quite a while ago!).  I have 17 years of experience teaching and have taught every grade of English from 7th grade to 12th grade. I received my Bachelor's Degree in English from Rockford University and my Teaching Certification and Master's Degree from Valparaiso University.
     
     
    I grew up in New Buffalo, Michigan, move away for a while, and moved back to the area.  My husband and I have one child who is attending Michigan City Area Schools and another who is attending Valparaiso University.  We have three dogs and three cats - and countless chickens!
