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!

Kathy Hammond

Advancement Director

I am originally from Bowling Green, but lived in the Chicago suburbs for 25 years. I joined the MSBG team in August 2019. I was interested in MSBG because I had been wanting to work for a school, and I like that the nurturing of independence spills over into the faculty and staff area! I love horses, and used to show them. I enjoy singing
ladies barbershop. When I was 10, I wanted to be an Olympic Equestrienne.
