Welcome to 1st Grade at Grandview Elementary School! I'm Jimmy Baker, and I'm thrilled to be your child's teacher for the 2016/2017 school year. I'm a life long resident of Dale County. I graduated from Dale County High School in 2006 and furthered my education at Wallace Community College, Troy University and Alabama State University. Education has always been a part of me, and teaching is my passion. During my spare time I enjoy family trips, reading, traveling and singing. Your child will learn many new things this year. As I plan engaging, exciting, and rigorous lessons, I reflect on my philosophy of education, "all children can learn, the more they are supported and challenged, the more successful they will be"! My goal is to provide a safe, fun and inspiring environment while assisting your child in becoming a successful critical thinker, problem solver, and LEADER! I'm looking forward to working with you and your child! Feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns.
Get ready for a SUPER year!
