Mrs. Bach might be a newcomer to Kingsley Schools, but she is a Northern Michigan native with more than a decade of teaching experience.
She spent the first part of her career as a teacher in Traverse City and joined Kingsley Schools as a fourth grade teacher in 2020.
Her favorite part about her job is watching her students "get excited about learning, and have that 'ah-ha!' moment."
Now, she's excited to foster more magical moments as she gets to know the entire Kingsley community.
We sat down with Mrs. Bach to get to get to know more about her.
