I'm thrilled to be joining the Baker family! This will be my ninth year in PISD in student services and my fifth year as a campus Special Education Department Chair. Last year I finished my Masters in Special Education which was a huge undertaking.  When I'm not at school, I'm spending time with my family.. my husband and our two children. Our daughter Maggie is 22 and is a vet tech in Prosper, and will be getting married this coming November! Our son Rhys is a Sophmore at Collin College and works at Costco. We moved out to the country 2 years ago, we have over 3 acres and love it!!! If you stop in my room, you will see lots of fun "farm" pictures!! I look forward to getting to know everyone and to be part of the Baker family this year!

I am passionate about helping children to see all the potential they have.
