Meet the Board: Maike Baumgart

Meet the Board is a new feature wherein we’ll share a bit more about the IMLA board members.  We’d like to be more than just a bunch of pretty faces. 

 

IMG_8049Meet Maike:

I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. I am the oldest of six children, all girls. My mother is a pre-school teacher so teaching has always been in my blood. I grew up getting lots of help with my math homework from my father who is German, because of this I have an appreciation for those who speak English as their second language and differentiated learning. I have younger sisters who have been my practice for my future classroom. It is always exciting to see something from my classroom help them in theirs. I love to read, so teaching Language Arts has been a wonderful fit for me. I also am huge sports fan so I love discussing sports and watching my students play.
