Mrs. Ashlee Baker

Welcome to 6th or 7th grade ELA and Reading! My name is Ashlee Baker and I am excited to be your teacher this year! Working with children has always been a passion of mine, as well as English, so it seems that I am in the perfect position this year. My philosophy is that students learn best while they are actively engaged and involved in their learning.  Everyone learns in a different way, so I am always working my hardest to accommodate the needs of every child. I went to school at Texas State University in San Marcos, where I majored in Education. I chose to come back home to Mesquite for student teaching, and the next year I taught all subjects in fourth grade. I got married in 2014, and I am now a proud mommy to my little boy, Ames, who was born in August 2015. He has changed my world in every way- for the better of course! I finished my masters in administration this May, which is an accomplishment that I am very proud of! I truly cannot believe that this is my fifth year of teaching...where did time go? Every year I learn and grow as well as my students, and I am so happy that I have a job that I am excited to get to everyday.  I want my students and their parents to feel comfortable coming to me with their wants and needs at any time. Please do not hesitate to contact me with anything that you may need throughout the year.
