Austin Baker has worked as the kindergarten teacher for 15 years before accepting the position of first-grade teacher in 2012. As a father of three, Austin is influenced by his belief that every child deserves the opportunity to be challenged at his or her own pace. In his work, Austin has been – and continues to be – inspired by the excitement he sees in his young students when they learn through play. For instance, Austin could be seen each week playing a stop-and-freeze game with his students during their walks between the classroom and gym – a purposeful game that integrates the concepts of body control, team work, among many. He believes in making every minute count and setting the base for developing good habits.
