Faculty Spotlight: Mrs. Susan Baker

Mrs. Baker is a fourth grade teacher. She also serves as our school pianist, performing at the annual holiday program and at each Head’s Assembly where she plays the alma mater. We asked her to share what inspires her to teach as she begins her 29th year teaching at Mason Prep.

Why do you teach?
I teach because I enjoy being with children and watching them mature and learn. There's nothing better than seeing a child achieve an "aha" moment. Also, it's great fun talking with the children one-on-one and getting their perspective on things. Every day in the classroom is different. Hopefully, I help the children learn. I know they certainly help me learn.

Why do you choose to teach at Mason Prep?
Mason Prep is a family. The faculty and staff members genuinely want what is best for the students and they genuinely care for each other as well. There is always someone willing to help out in a pinch.

What do you enjoy outside of school?
My husband and I love seeing our children and grandchildren whenever we can. We also enjoy getting together with friends either on the water or in someone's yard for a cookout. When the weather is warm, you can find us out in the boat.
