Bay City Academy Staff Spotlight Mrs. Chambers-Smith Title 1 Teacher 1. Favorite Song? I really don't have a favorite song but I'll listen to the 70's or 80's channel on  Sirius XM. 1. What is the vehicle of your dreams? I've been really wanting a 1967 red Ford mustang convertible, I'd also take a car like George Jetson had because it would be so much easier to avoid traffic if I was hovering above it. 3. Favorite food? My family will probably say pizza. Lately I've been on a quest to find some really good cod fish. 4. Favorite actor/actress? I'm a Seinfield fan, I like Adam Sandler and the classic Saturday Night Live cast. 5. If you could have any pet, what would it be?  A pet rock because I'm allergic to most animals. Actions over words, service over self.

Bay City Academy Staff Spotlight Mr. Gibas Secondary English Language Arts Teacher 1. Favorite sport and team? Baseball and Detroit Tigers are my team. They won the World Series a year after I was born, and I hope that they win another one before the invention of teleportation and flying cars. 2. Favorite place to vacation? Walt Disney World is a place that the whole family can agree upon. It is even more fun as an adult. 3. One thing you cannot live without? My wife and two boys. Also, coffee. 4. When you were 10, what profession did you want to have? My career options bounced between marine biologist and centerfielder for the Detroit Tigers. Based on the 2022 season so far, I think that my second option is still feasible. 5. Super power you wish you had? I would love to be able to time travel. Don't worry, I would not change anything. I just want some next-level entertainment. Acitons over words, service over self.
