Food Preparation & Nutrition and the Mentorship courses.
This will be my 8th year teaching at Westlake High School - it will be my 1st year teaching the Food Prep class and my 2nd year with the Mentorship Program. In prior years, I taught English and coached volleyball and track.
I'm originally from the Northwest where I attended the University of Portland in Portland, Oregon. I double majored in English and Education while also playing volleyball. I moved to Texas eight years ago and have been at Westlake ever since.
I married my amazing husband, James Baker - who also teaches and coaches at Westlake - in 2011. We welcomed triplets in 2013 - one girl and two boys: Everly, Dallen, and Grayson. I absolutely adore my precious family. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, coffee, running, and a wide variety of sports. I'm a huge football fan; I love the New Orleans Saints... it helps that my brother happens to be a backup quarterback to Westlake's own, Drew Brees.
I am thrilled you're in my class this year!
