Written by David Green.

beach.emilie.jpgIt’s a familiar face that Morenci Area High School students will see this year in the social studies classroom.

Morenci graduate Emilie (Yatzek) Beach will fill the teaching slot vacated by Jesse Bach who is on a one-year sabbatical. Beach was hired as a year-long substitute.

After high school, Beach attended Hope College for three years and eventually earned a teaching degree at Siena Heights University.

She was a student teacher in Morenci last year, working with Renae Schaffner, and she worked part of the year at the high school as a long-term substitute in Spanish.

Before that she served as a general substitute teacher primarily in Morenci.

She was married in 2009 after college graduation and she and her husband, Jamie Beach, live in Adrian.

She will return to a second year of coaching in Morenci this winter with the junior varsity girls basketball team.

In addition to keeping busy preparing for her new teaching job—she was offered the position just last week—she and her husband spend time managing rental property they own.
