Meet Mrs. Baker

    Most of my students know I come from the “Show Me” state since they often have to show me how they got their answers.

    I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and attended Baker University (no relation) in Baldwin City, Kansas graduating from the University of Missouri, K.C.   I taught fourth and fifth grades in North Kansas City, Missouri and Willimantic, Connecticut before taking time off to raise my children.  Katie and Scott were born in Hanover, NH right before our move to Bozeman, MT.  We came to Bainbridge in 1984 and they went to Wilkes Elementary School for Kindergarten through 5th grade and graduated BHS in 1998.  I substituted in all three of the Bainbridge grade school before taking a job at Wilkes in first grade.  This is my 20th year in first grade and I’m still learning something new each day from these amazing 6 and 7 year olds. 

    I enjoy gardening, walking my dog, reading, cooking, and of course, baking.  I LOVE Science!  I think children come into the world born to investigate.  Through investigation we will explore, write, read, calculate, and graph information.
