Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Jody Brecht, and I am a first grade teacher at Bach Elementary School. I love teaching first grade with Mrs. Houston and Mrs. Taylor. We are a great team!
I grew up in southern Indiana and got my B.S. in Elementary Education at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana. When I graduated, I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to teach 2nd grade. I was only there two years before deciding to move to Michigan with my husband. I then got my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Eastern Michigan. I began my career in Ann Arbor at Lawton teaching 2nd grade. I then taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades at Pattengill, first grade at Allen, and kindergarten and first grade at Dicken. I have taught every grade K-5 at some point in my 26 years of teaching. I came to Bach in 2009, and hope to stay here and in first grade forever!
