Ms. Whitney W Goodwin Baker
Hi, I am Whitney Baker, I have been happily teaching for 26 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 26 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. 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 8th 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!
