Meet the Guidance Team!
Ron Bachman -(Academic counselor for students with the last name starting with P-Z)
Ron is Director of Guidance and has been at Metamora Twp. High for 30 years. In addition to all that happens in the guidance office, Ron coaches girls track in the spring. On his own time he does "cowboy stuff," like raising cattle, working with horses, team roping, and fixing fence. He likes to use analogies so when talking to him do not be surprised with stories about barn yard chickens, spooky colts and "round pen reasoning." He is a little bit country, but seems to be ok with that fact.
