Mrs. Baldwin is the K-2 Literacy Coarch and IRT for LES.

Warmest greetings! I grew up in Wake Forest, NC and graduated from Appalachian State - Summa Cum Laude in Elementary Education with a Spanish minor. 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.  This is my 9th year working in WCPSS and I am proud to call LES my home! My position was created to support literacy instruction through working with teachers and families. I am here for you, so please don't hesitate to reach out!

My husband and I have three little ones, Knox (4), Rosalie (2) and Harry who was born this past September!  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."
