Ms. Mary (Catherine) Baker
Hi, my name is Catherine Baker. I have been teaching for 20 years, all in 5th grade except one year I taught 1st grade. Before I started teaching full time, I substituted here at Hardy Oak since the school opened back in 2000. I have taught Science all of my years in 5th grade, and I have also taught Social Stuides and Reading/Language Arts.
I graduated from St. Mary's University with a BBA in Finance and obtained a Post-Baccalaureate degree in Science Interdisciplinary Studies/Teacher Certification from Texas A & M University San Antonio.
I have two grown children, my daughter is 30 and my son is 28. Both are Hardy Oak Hornet alumni! :)
I also have a toy Chihauhau named Coco and a rather large cat named Aries that I love spoiling!
In my free time, I enjoy walking, reading, watching movies, baking and traveling.
I look forward to an exciting 5th grade year with your child and look forward to meeting you all soon!
