Jessica Baker

Early Childhood

Jessica Baker is a dynamic and compassionate music educator whose love and enthusiasm is truly contagious! She can be seen teaching Music Together classes on Saturdays at Sherwood. Born and raised in Minnesota, she earned degrees in both Music Education and English Literature from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. Jessica found that while her first love was playing the horn, her passion is teaching. She is a certified K-12 music teacher in the state of Illinois and currently works full time at Carl Von Linne School teaching general music as well as the after school theater program.

Jessica received her Music Together training and began teaching early childhood classes at Sherwood in 2009. She became hooked on the idea that every child is born with the ability to be musical and considers it an honor and privilege to be involved in the lives of so many families and children. Her motto (thank you John Lennon) is “All You Need is Love!”
