Baker, Alyssa
8th Grade ELA/SS Teacher

Hello, everyone! I will be teaching ELA and Social Studies for the 2021-2022 school year. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December of 2020, with a Bachelor's degree in English and a minor in Professional Education. I started teaching at Charlotte Middle School in January of 2021. I love all things baseball and football, Disney, Marvel, and literature. I consider myself a lifelong learner because I am always excited to learn new things and incorporate them into my classroom. I am so excited to be teaching ELA and Social Studies, and I cannot wait to see where this year takes us. 

Let's go Tigers!!
