Melissa Burch

1st grade


My name is Melissa Burch.  I am a native of Benzie County.  I am married to Tyson and have three daughters, Riley (a sophomore at Grand Valley,) Morgan is a senior at Benzie and Peyton is a Sophomore.  We have an English Springer Spaniel, named Boone, who thinks he’s pretty important in the family hierarchy.  Tyson is  retired from the Marine Corps, so we have seen a bit of the world, but always wanted to come back to Benzie County.  Nothing beats summer in Northern Michigan.

I went to elementary school at Crystal Lake and graduated from Benzie Central.  I have my Bachelor’s Degree from Central Michigan and my Master’s Degree from Marygrove College.  I truly love being a teacher in a district which I grew up in, and one which my daughters are receiving their education.
