About Mrs. Kate Baker

***Edmodo Certified Trainer*** ***Edmodo Support Ambassador*** As Plutarch wrote in Moralia, On Listening to Lectures 48C (LCL 1.256-25), "For the mind does not require filling like a bottle, but rather, like wood, it only requires kindling to create in it an impulse to think independently and an ardent desire for the truth," and while my students will attest that I fill up their binders and class streams, they will state that I do get fired up when teaching literature and using technology in the classroom. With over 15 years of teaching experience in HS English and 22 years coaching swimming, I relish inspiring my students to think critically and become passionate about the topics studied in class. Outside of the classroom, one can find me roaming the halls with my sidekick, Brody the therapy dog, a member of the Southern PAWS pack, or yelling "GO!" on the pool deck during swim season. I love learning and continue to evolve as a teacher and coach. You can follow my academic exploits here: http://kbakerbyodlit.blogspot.com/ and connect with me on Twitter @KtBkr4.
