Sandra Baker

Hello! My name is Sandra Baker and I am so excited to be joining the staff at Saint Thomas More Catholic School! I graduated from the State University of New York, College at Cortland with a degree in Elementary Education. While teaching Kindergarten in California I attended California State University, Fullerton and received my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

This will be my 14th year of teaching and the majority of my teaching experience has been in First Grade. My favorite thing about teaching First Grade is watching the tremendous growth students make in reading and mathematics throughout the year. I look forward to challenging each student to do their best and honor the unique gifts each child brings to our classroom.

I will be communicating with parents through weekly blogs on this site. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at sandrab@stthomasmore.org. I will do my very best to reply to you within 24 hours. I look forward to working with you and your child this year!

God Bless,

Sandra Baker
