Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Tara Baker, and I teach English 8 and Academic Enrichment. I studied Integrated Language Arts Education at The Ohio State University, so I love Buckeye sports and all things OSU! Currently, I am working towards a Master’s of Art in Instructional Design with a K12 educational technology endorsement from Miami University. I’m passionate about integrating technology in the classroom to make teaching and learning more effective. Specifically, I love exploring new ways that tech can be used to differentiate instruction for each student’s unique learning needs.
This is my first year at New Albany Middle School but my fourth year teaching overall. Some of my favorite English topics to teach include Shakespearen plays, dystopian stories, and creative writing! Outside of the English classroom, I am advising the New Albany Middle School Student Council. Partnering with students to serve our school and community has been a fun and rewarding way to get involved at NAMS. Go Eagles!
