Teachers of TN: Katelyn Baker

“I love the opportunity I have every day to make a difference in the lives of my students. I love knowing that my job is an important one and having that sense of purpose every morning … I just feel really lucky. I am the teacher that I am because I had the help of coaches, administrators, and many other teachers to help me along the way. It has been so energizing and encouraging to be recognized. This makes me want to set the bar even higher for myself and for my students.”

Katelyn Baker, third grade teacher in Hamilton County and recipient of the Milken Educator Award
