My name is Christine Paglia Baker, and I am the Fourth Grade teacher at Leverett Elementary School. I have taught at LES since the fall of 2011. In addition to teaching fourth grade, I have also I taught fifth grade and essential skills at LES.
I began my education career in 2001, teaching visitors of all ages at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Brunswick, Maine. I went on to work as a museum educator at the Clark Art Institute, the Williams College Museum of Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery. I received my Master’s degree in Education from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2010, my Master’s degree in Art History from Williams College in 2005, and my bachelor’s degree in Art History and Spanish from Bowdoin College in 2000.
I continue to bring my background in art to my teaching at LES. In my free time, I enjoy writing, making art, practicing yoga, visiting museums, and spending time with my two young children.
