Baer promotes student-directed learning

“It was a history teacher that changed my life,” she said. “He saw me for who I am among the sea of children, and I thought that’s what I want to do for somebody. I want to touch a child the way that person had changed my life.”

Baer aims to do that with her students by engaging them in self-directed lessons designed to spark their interest and curiosity.
