Hi! My name is Mrs. Bacher, but some of you may remember me as Miss Smith (I was married in December 2008). This is my SEVENTEENTH year of teaching, which is somewhat hard to believe! After nine years of teaching the 4th and 5th graders, six years of teaching 2nd grade, looping with my most recent group of 2nd graders to 3rd grade, I am now returning to 2nd grade for a seventh year, and I'm SUPER excited!!!
In my free time, I LOVE to travel! I've been to more than half of the states in the U.S. and four countries outside of the U.S. I also enjoy swimming, taking walks with my family and dog, playing the piano, and going to plays/concerts. A lot of my "free time" currently involves being a wife, a homemaker, and a mom to three beautiful daughters. My husband and I are really enjoying watching our little girls grow and being parents!
