Hello! My name is Amber Baker, and I'm thrilled to say this is my 2nd year teaching middle school at Clear Creek School. I grew up in right here in Grass Valley, California and graduated from Chico State University in 2006, completing my multiple subject credential and single subject mathematics credential in 2007. I began my teaching career in the Marysville Unified School District. I taught elementary school for 9 years before taking some family time to raise my two sons. Last year I had 7th grade full time, and this year I looped with my students and I am teaching Algebra I, Geometry, Physical Science, and Electives in the mornings for 8th grade.
Currently, I live in Grass Valley with my husband, Mike, my two boys: Preston-9 and Paxton-3, our dog, Wesley, and our classroom fish, Kool-Aid Man and Medusa II.
I enjoy the outdoors: hiking, biking, travelling, going to the rivers, lakes, and oceans. I love reading, and spending time with my family. Many students see me out and about at various sports and events with my children.
