Kindergarten with Mrs. Baum

Mrs. Baum, Kindergarten Teacher


I teach kindergarten at the Gilford Butler School. I began teaching in SAD 5 at the McLain Building in 1977! I have taught grades K-5 and many years of combined grades, K-1, 1-2,& 2-3. I have taught 3 generations of students! I earned my degree in Elementary Education and Learning Disabilities from the University of Southern Maine. I also studied at the University of Illinois and at Whiteland College in London.


I am married and have two wonderful adult children. My son has traveled the world as a Merchant Marine Office and my daughter is co-owner of two child care centers. I love traveling, kayaking, and being with my large, extended family. I also love teaching kindergarten.
