Kudos Corner
Kristin Baker
Intermediate School
Submitted by: Barbara Jordan 
Kristin Baker is one of the most caring, generous, kind-hearted, intelligent people I know and I am filled with such gratitude for all she has done for my son and his 4th grade classmates.  Not only has she made the transition from MES to the Intermediate School easy, stress-free and fun, she has gone above and beyond on several occasions in helping my little guy through more than a few academic, as well as personal challenges. 
What makes Mrs. Baker so special is that it doesn’t take a big crisis for her to reach out, step in or go the extra mile to help one of her students.  She always generously gives her time and helps “with all the little things” that mean so very much to her students and their parents.  Mrs. Baker’s commitment to providing a caring, positive, safe, honest, open, interesting and dynamic environment so critical for learning is evident in everything she does.  Every time I receive a letter, email or phone call from her, I am amazed at her dedication to teaching and so grateful for the manner in which she genuinely cares for each of her students….and she does it all with grace and a wonderful generosity of spirit, patience and good will. Thank you, Mrs. Baker for all you do….your gift of teaching our Rondout students is priceless!
