Baker earned her bachelor’s degree in Business from Tuskeegee University, her master’s in Elementary Education at Troy State University, her master’s degree in Education Leadership from the University of West Georgia, and her doctorate in Curriculum Studies from Georgia Southern University.

“I am excited about this opportunity to work with teachers and administrators to intertwine new ideas with the strong curriculum foundation we have for English Language Arts and Social Studies,” said Baker.
