Ms. Whitney W Goodwin Baker
Hi, I am Whitney Baker, I have been happily teaching for 27 years. I received my BA in Interdisciplinary Studies and my Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of Texas San Antonio. I have been lucky enough to have spent my entire 27 years in North East ISD. I started teaching Pre-Kinder at Harmony Hills Elementay, taught Kinder, first, at Ridgeview Elementary and then came home to Wetmore when it opened in 2001. This is our 20th year open and we are so excited about this monumental year of learning and growing! I have taught 1st and 2nd, but the the majority of my teaching has been in Kindergarten. I absouletly LOVE teaching, I cannot imagine doing any thing else.
I have a beautiful daughter, Karabella Wren, who is in 9th grade. She is truly the light of my life! I love spending time with her and our two dogs, Anna the Bassett Hound and Dexter the mix. We are usually busy with family, tennis and homework!
I am so BLESSED and thankful that you are allowing me the honor of teaching your child! I am very open to any suggestions, help and support! I can't wait to work with you and your child!
