Hello and welcome to my school Fusion Page! My name is Mrs. Baker and I am thrilled to say that I will be your child's second grade teacher this year. A wonderful new school year is about to begin and I would like to take this opportunity to help you get to know a little about me, both personally and professionally. I look forward to getting to know you, as well.
I have been part of the Northfield teaching community for nearly 20 exciting years. Northfield has also been my home for more than 24 years. I'm thrilled to be teaching the children in the community in which I live! My undergraduate work was completed at Philadelphia University and Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree with Highest Honors. I also hold a M.S. Ed. in Elementary Reading and Literacy. I enjoy reading, gardening, tennis, bicycling, and exercising with my husband and 16 year old son.
My mission as a teacher is to enthusiastically inspire and motivate each child to believe in themselves and their ability to reach for the stars. Through my teaching, I will strive to help each child develop good moral character and high academic achievement. My desire is for each child to become a contributing member of our school, community, and our global 21st century community as well. My goal is to help each child attain their dream, succeed in whatever they choose to do, and be proud of their accomplishment, be it great or small!
Please stay in touch with all that is happening in our classroom by visiting our School Fusion site frequently. It's a fun way to learn about our class. Your child's second grade school year will be full of excitement and wonder for all of us!
