Meet Mrs. Baker
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, EVA Kindergarten Families!
I am excited to get to know you, and wanted to share a little about myself with you. My name is Nadjua, but I go by Naddie. (The kids call me Mrs. Baker). I live in NE Minneapolis with my husband, Dimitry, and our dog, Gigi. We love spending time with our family and friends, traveling to new places in the world and trying new food. In my free time, I love to run, walk, read and bake.
It is hard to believe this will already be my tenth year teaching Kindergarten! Time flies when you work with young children and love what you do. Before coming to Highlands, I taught kindergarten in St. Paul. I have a degree in Elementary Education from St. Catherine University, with a Pre-Primary Specialty. I love being part of the Highlands community and I am excited to now be part of the EVA community! I feel especially lucky to work with kindergarteners. Young children inspire me and challenge me to keep growing as a teacher.
I look forward to partnering with you this school year.
