Learning By Doing

Beth Sycamore

Kindergarten Associate


Position: Kindergarten Associate

When did you start working at Baker? Joined Baker Faculty in 2018. That said, I’ve worked on literacy and math research projects with Baker Faculty as a National College of Ed graduate student (1982-1985) and was actively involved as a Baker Parent (2004-2009).

What is your favorite thing about working at Baker? The abundance of opportunities/resources for Baker students to flourish is unrivaled—green space, art studio, maker space, theater, regulation-sized gym and pool, individualized instruction, logical student/faculty ratio, integrated instruction, play-based curriculum, a strong sense of community, and more.

Where did you get your degree(s)? Ripon College, University of Massachusetts: Amherst; National College of Education, Teacher’s College Columbia University

What is the greatest gift you hope to bestow upon your students? Guiding students to become risk-takers and independent learners as well as sharing my passion for book-making and active learning experiences,

What is a fun fact about yourself? I enjoy spending time on my island in New Hampshire. Theres’s no electricity or running water—just a tiny cottage, a few kayaks, a paddleboard, and tons of blueberries. It’s a tranquil place in the middle of nowhere to reflect, relax, write, and recharge.
