Bev Bechstein

Executive Director

I am originally from Grand Rapids, OH. I joined MSBG in June 2010. As a parent and professional educator, I appreciate the excellent, holistic education students receive here. This type of educational setting is like no other I have experienced, and thrives on mutual respect among students, parents and staff. I am thrilled and honored to be a part of this wonderful education environment. When I was 10, I wanted to be a teacher!
