Principal's Message

As Principal of Baker Heights Elementary, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. It is my pleasure and honor to join Baker Heights and the community. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our students and working with our professional staff and you, parents and community members.


This school year promises to allow our students to reach new heights in achievement. We are gearing up in terms of teacher training, physical campus improvements, and a huge dose of optimism.


Our motto is

"Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts.”


Together with your support, we will make that motto come alive at Baker Heights this school year. Please be assured that we are creating the safest environment possible for your child to learn and grow academically and socially. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.


I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Baker Heights. I maintain an open door policy in which I welcome everyone to call or drop by and visit at any time.
