What’s your favorite thing about working at Baker? Coming from a low income school, I only knew education as direct instruction and drill/practice. Baker has taught me what education should be. My favorite part about working at Baker is the hands-on learning experiences and the impact it has on students.

What is a fun fact about yourself? I have only one kidney or I’ve been to Mexico over 20 times.
