After working at GBS for 35 years, Health Teacher Michelle Scheinkopf will be retiring this spring. Scheinkopf began working at GBS in 1979 after attending college at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.

In addition to teaching health classes, Scheinkopf has been involved in numerous different extracurriculars throughout her years, which are where she claims she holds some of her best memories.

“[In] all my activities and extracurriculars I probably have the greatest memories,” Scheinkopf said.

Once retired, Scheinkopf said that she plans on relaxing, traveling and getting further involved in her hobbies, like photography and riding horses. Though she is excited about retirement, Scheinkopf is grateful for the time she has spent here.

“I really have nothing but fond memories of working [at GBS],” Scheinkopf said. “I know its cliché, but when I wake up in the morning, I’m happy to come here.”
