Faculty

Hannah Baker

Hannah Baker is an artist and educator at Aspen Middle School. She originally from Northern Michigan, where she learned to be curious and aware of the space around her. She grew her artistic confidence in forests of towering hardwoods and pine trees that span miles of rolling hills. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and German and a minor in Museum Studies from the University of Michigan in 2018 and recently completed a Master of Arts in Teaching at Maryland Institute College of Art in May 2023. She began teaching in 2019, inspired by students’ strength in outdoor education, and wanted to incorporate those dispositions into her own classroom. She wants students to know their ideas have value, problem solve how to express these ideas, and understand the impact their creations have on others.Outside of teaching, she loves experimenting with her own art and baking delicious treats.
