Faculty & Staff at Baker

Learning By Doing

Andrew Marikis

Drama Teacher


Where did you get your degree(s)? I have Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Theatre from Baldwin-Wallace University in Berea, OH; and, I am in the first year of my Master’s program in Elementary Education at National Louis University. 

What excites you about teaching at Baker? The amount of time I get to engage each student and the freedom to try challenging my students in creative ways to joyfully explore the arts, their own talents, and friendships with each other.

What is the greatest gift you hope to bestow upon your students? Confidence in finding their own voice. 

What is a fun fact about yourself? I love nothing more than a night of good karaoke. 

Superpower: My belief that young voices are important and my infectious enthusiasm!
