4th Grade

Brook and Kloie


I am happy to welcome you and your child to my class!  My name is Brook Baker, and I am very excited to begin another fabulous year of teaching here at West Buncombe!  This will be my eleventh year teaching ... four in third grade and seven in fourth grade!  I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a K-6 Teaching Licensure from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2007 after completion of student teaching in third grade at West Buncombe.  I am also a graduate of Montreat College where I attained my Masters of Education degree.  In 2011, I also received my National Board Certification in middle childhood. 
I am an Asheville native, and I am grateful to be giving back to the community and school system in which I attended.  I graduated from A.C. Reynolds High School and am so thankful to be working for Buncombe County Schools.  Most importantly, I am excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your child!  Fourth grade will be a productive year filled with new, fun-filled experiences, new friends, and new knowledge! 
Outside of school, I enjoy working out, teaching Turbo Kick and TRX at the YMCA, coaching the UNCA Cheer and Dance Team, shopping, and spending time with my friends, family, and  my Jack Russell puppy, Kloie!!   Just one visit to my classroom will reveal my love for all things PINK!!!

"An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
--Carl Jung
