Michelle Safarz, beloved teacher, mourned

Michelle Safarz, beloved Bay High teacher, mourned by Bay Schools staff and students
Bay High School science teacher, Michelle Safarz, passed away unexpectedly last week, but she leaves two decades of students inspired by her passion for science, as well as many friends and colleagues inspired by her sense of humor and kindness.

Mrs. Safarz began working at Bay High in 1999 and quickly became a popular teacher with both her students and Bay High staff members. She remained a student of science in order to bring current knowledge in the field to her classroom. In addition, she studied to learn best practices for teaching technical reading skills and for motivating students to succeed.

In addition to her role as a science teacher, Mrs. Safarz guided students for several years as an advisor to Key Club and as a Drama Club advisor. She won a Bay Education Foundation grant for a Ronald McDonald House dinner project. Mrs. Safarz also served as a mentor to younger teachers over the years.

The students and staff of Bay Village Schools extend their heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Mrs. Michelle Safarz who in her own words "worked as a teacher to make the world a better place." We know she made Bay High and Bay Village Schools a better place through her 20 years of dedication to our district.

(Memorial services and visitation for Mrs. Safarz have been arranged by her family and can be found HERE.)
