Mrs. Baldwin is the K-2 Instruction Facilitator and Literacy Coach for LES.

Warmest greetings! I grew up in Wake Forest, NC and graduated from Appalachian State.  Reluctantly I came back home to teach, but fell in love with Raleigh as an adult. That's right - I am WCPSS graduate! I have my licensure in Elementary Education K-6 and as a Reading Specialist K-12. I have worked as a classroom teacher, an interventionist, and currently, as a Literacy Coach and Instruction Facilitator. This is my 12th year working in WCPSS and I am proud to call LES my home! 

My husband and I have three little ones, Knox (7), Rosalie (5) and Harry (3). We also have a furry family member, Bear, who is a 100 lb St. Bernard/Golden mix. We spend most of our time chasing kids and cleaning up messes - I'm living in that truth - "the days are long, but the years are short."
