Welcome to 8th Grade Georgia Studies!! I am Mrs. Baker, and I will be your teacher for this course. This will actually be my first year teaching Georgia Studies. I am looking forward to teaching a new area and grade level! The past 3 years I have taught 6th grade social studies, so I may actually have some of y'all in my class again. It will be nice to see familiar faces. If you are new to my class, I am excited to meet you!
Just a little bit about myself....it's always nice to know about someone in order to better connect. I am originally from Oklahoma, but have also lived in Okinawa, Japan for 3 years and Ramstein, Germany for 3 years. Since my husband is in the military, we have had the opportunity to live and travel all over Asia, Europe, and the United States. I also have two sons who are in elementary and a Ryukyu Inu (Okinawa mix dog) named Leo.
I also hold a BA in History Education, a M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Google Certification.
I know this upcoming school year will look different than any other we have experienced, but we got this. We will get through it and be stronger for it.
