Our classroom needs students!

This is our classroom all ready for students!  I can't wait!

A present for our class...

When I arrived at school the other day, this was waiting by our class door.  Notice the wonderful Kleenex bow!

This is what was all wrapped up for us from our third grade buddies' teacher, Mr. Smith!  Harry Potter is now hanging on the wall and teaches us how much soap and how many paper towels we should use when we was our hands!

All about Ms. Baker

Hi Everyone!  I am really excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher this year.  Here is some information about me and I am sure you will learn lots more as the year progresses!

I grew up on a farm in central Louisiana and moved to Colorado in 2003 for grad school at CU.  While my heart still lies with my undergrad Alma Mater, LSU, I have been know to cheer on the Buffs from time to time!

One of my all time favorite things in life is the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS!  I became a fan when I was 4 and began saving for the Superbowl when I was 13!  When the SAINTS actually went to the Superbowl in 2010 it was a dream come true!

My husband Shawn and I also love to travel!  I have a travel blog full of fun pictures and videos from around the world that I love to share with the class!

Finally, I love to wakeboard!  I go back to Louisiana for 2 months every summer to spend time on the water.  Our water is really warm there which I love.  The only downside is that we oftentimes see snakes and alligators!
