Mrs. Baker - Room 32
Welcome to Mrs. Baker's third grade classroom!
This is my 23rd year at St. Vincent de Paul. I teach English to all third grade students. I also teach religion, reading, math, spelling, handwriting, and vocabulary to my homeroom students.
I hold a BFAE from Wayne State College in Wayne, NE. Before I came to St. Vincent, I was the 6-12 grade band director and 8th grade reading teacher at Aquinas Catholic Schools in David City, NE.
Our class motto is: "Do my best, be my best. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." The students are encouraged to apply this motto to all aspects of their life.
"Making a Diference for Christ: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow" is our school theme this year. What an amazing year this will be as we continue to celebrate the influence we have as a school family!
Please feel free to contact me by email or by telephone (402-492-2111 to leave a message) if you have any questions, concerns, or comments about your child.
Classroom Information and Links
Mrs. Rakoczy is my full time teacher associate. This is her 8th year as an associate at SVdP, and her second year in grade three. Prior to joining the third grade team, Mrs. Rakoczy spent six years as a Kindergarten TA.
There is a lot to learn and do this year! Some exciting concepts in third grade include cursive handwriting, multipication, and division. We will work together to develop the academic, social, and organizational skills needed to be successful as a student and as a citizen. Prayer is included in every facet of the school day. We pray the Angelus with our lunch prayer and a decade of the Divine Mercy Chaplet at the end of each school day.
