Mrs. Karen Baker
I am a 1981 graduate of West Chester State College with a BS in Elementary and Special Education. I began my teaching career in First Grade for 3 years in Philadelphia. After marrying and moving to New Jersey in 1984, I taught a self-contained special education class in Deptford Township for 5 years before leaving to have my first of five children and begin my stay-at-home Mom job. In 2002, I began substitute teaching, and February of 2005, I took a part-time special education position at Bells Elementary. I worked as an Inclusion teacher in 2nd grade for eight years. This is my fourth year at Hurffville Elementary as a 5th grade Inclusion teacher. I love it!
I live in Gloucester Township with my husband and children who range in age from 21 to 28. My children are grown now with careers of their own: a nurse, a PT, an OT and a college student studying Public Health/Nutrition.
