About Mrs. Dee Baker

I CAN, therefore I teach. :) I moved to Florida in June 2016 from Virginia Beach, Virginia with my husband of 21 years, Jay, our three children, Austen, 19, (who is an IB-MYP alumnus and attends FSU as a pre-Mechanical Engineering major), Hannah, 16 (who is a current IB junior here at Largo High School), Lainey, 13 (who is an 8th grader at the Pinellas Academy of Math and Science), our 9 year old Springer Spaniel, Max, and a 7(?) year old black cat whom we call Puma that decided to adopt us as his family five summers ago. I have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, and I have also attended Virginia Tech and UVA.  I was working on a Master's in Mathematics Education from Radford University when my husband was transferred to Tampa with the Tampa Bay Business Journal, and I made the decision to suspend my studies for now. This is my seventeenth year teaching, my second here at Largo High School, my fifth teaching IB, and my eighth teaching high school. Before moving to Florida, I was the IB-MYP Lead Mathematics Teacher at Plaza Middle School in Virginia Beach for three years, and I spent the previous six years at Ocean Lakes High School, teaching Magnet Geometry, Magnet Precalculus, Magnet Data Analysis, and Magnet Mathematical Modeling for the Mathematics and Science Academy. Before joining the staff at OL, I worked in Hampton City Schools teaching subjects ranging from life science, to reading, to various levels of mathematics. I also taught Geometry for two years at Kemps Landing Gifted Magnet School, before taking a few years off to raise my children, and I taught online Technology Integration courses for the School of Professional and Continuing Studies for the University of Virginia from 2009-2011. I achieved National Board Certification in Adolescent and Young Adult Mathematics in November of 2012. In my spare time, I enjoy running, scrapbooking, reading, crossword puzzles, and kayaking/paddleboarding in the Intercoastal Waterway close to my home in Treasure Island.
