Jody Brecht

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!
