I wish I knew more about Mrs. Bacher's biographical data so I could share it here. She was my third grade teacher, and taught both my sisters in third grade as well. Mrs. Bacher was the most wonderful, inspiring teacher a child could have. She encouraged all her students to be more creative and to have an appreciation for learning. She particularly fostered in me a love of literature. I've never read any of her writing, but I wanted to share the little bit I remember about her. She was a great lady.
