Carrie Baker

Mrs. Baker


Hello! My name is Carrie Baker. I grew up in Homewood, Alabama. I attended Shades Cahaba Elementary School, Homewood Middle School, and graduated from Homewood High School. Upon high school graduation, I attended the University of Montevallo where I earned my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Elementary Education. 


I began my teaching career in January of 1999 teaching fourth grade at Shelby Academy in Montevallo, Alabama. In August of 2005, I began teaching third grade at Valley Intermediate School in Pelham, Alabama. In August of 2016, I made the move to first grade at Pelham Ridge Elementary. 


I am so glad I made the choice so many years ago to become an educator. I have enjoyed so many experiences and adventures with my students and peers over the years. I truly cherish the moments of smiles, giggles and awe from my students, past and present. It is amazing to see the growth in these children as successful lifelong learners and leaders.
