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 NINETEENTH year of teaching, which is somewhat hard to believe!  After nine years of teaching the 4th and 5th graders, ten 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!

Class Schedule:

Students are permitted to the classrooms at 7:30am.  They are expected to be in their classrooms by 7:45am when the bell rings, or they are marked tardy.

Our class schedule is pretty similar each day.

We will always start with a Morning Meeting.  During this time, we go over the schedule of the day, update our calendar, and talk about the issue of the day.

Your child will receive instruction in the following areas everyday (*unless, of course, there is a scheduling conflict):

Fundations/Spelling/Vocabulary (focuses on phonics, letter formation, spelling, and more)
Everyday Math
Science or Social Studies
Reading Instruction (whole class and small group)

Recognizing that 2nd graders need to take breaks and get the wiggles out, we have stretch and wiggle breaks throughout the day.  We also have arranged for an afternoon recess from 1:15 - 1:30pm (Monday - Thursday) and a morning recess 9:30 - 9:45am on Fridays due to our afternoon special.
