Attended Belhaven College in Memphis


     Welcome to Mrs. Baker's 4th grade class. I  have had the pleasure of working at Pleasant Hill Elementary School since the school opened in 2004 and am looking forward to another exciting year!

     I graduated from Central Michigan University. My husband and I have lived in the area for more than 20 years.  We have three children.  Joshua is a student at Ole Miss.  Kyle is a senior at Desoto Central High School and our daughter, Jamie, is in the 9th Grade at Lewisburg High School.

     My hobbies are camping, playing games, and traveling, especially to visit family members in Arkansas and Michigan. I also enjoy playing tennis and reading.

     My hope this year for the students is that they will find joy in reading and writing.  I look forward to another great year at PHES!
