Craig Baker

My name is Craig Baker and I am a Fourth Grade teacher here at Ridgeview Elementary! I have been teaching since 1995. This is my 2nd year in District 49 and I am enjoying my experience here at Ridgeview. The educators at this school are amazing and truly do care for their students!!

I grew up in Colorado Springs and graduated from Widefield High School, GO GLADIATORS!!. I am the father of six, with 2 in college now, one playing Div. II soccer.  I love playing many outdoor sports, especially baseball.  Come see the annual 'Old Time Baseball Game" on Labor Day at the Rock Ledge Ranch at The Garden of the Gods, and see Craig "The Educator" Baker play. I also enjoy the occasional hike or camping trip.  I LOVE my area sports teams: Go Rockies, Av's, World Champion Nuggets, and I bleed Orange & Blue.  

Feel free to contact me via email or classroom phone if you have any questions.


Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn.
