Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Samantha Baker. I love being a member of the community here in Fountain and at Eagleside Elementary. My hope is that your student will love Eagleside too! I hold a degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado Boulder, and a teaching certificate in Elementary Education. I moved from the Boulder area to Colorado Springs with my chocolate lab, Jack in 2016. I have had the pleasure of teaching students of all ages, ranging from kindergarten through fifth grade, and I am excited to work with your kiddo through this upcoming year in 3rd grade.
I am happy to welcome you and your student into my class. We will learn and grow, both as a community and as individuals. It is my goal to encourage and support your student to do their very best. I hope that they are as excited for this new adventure as I am. I understand that the first few years in a child’s education are important for building good habits and providing fundamental stepping stones for their future. I look forward to working with your student, and cannot wait to get to know all of them.
If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I know we are going to have a great year.
