Ms. Cynthia Baker

I started working in District 89 in 1999.  I taught at Arbor View and Park View my first year before landing at Glen Crest Middle School.  I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Special Education.  I then went back to school and received a Masters Degree in reading and language, and earned my reading specialist certificate.  In 2018, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Early Adolescent English Language Arts. Helping students become stronger readers is energizing, especially when I see how empowered it makes them feel!  I've been fortunate in my career to work closely with the families of my students.  When I'm not teaching, I enjoy baking, reading, swimming, and spending time with my family.
