Mrs. Baxter Whoo? - Mrs. Baxter Who?

  • Let me introduce myself to you. I am Mrs. Baxter. I graduated from Buffalo State College with a dual degree in Elementary Education and Exceptional Education. I received my degree in Learning and Behavioral Disorders then returned  to obtain my Master's degree and teaching certification. I have been teaching in Buffalo for over 20 years. I love teaching and couldn't see myself in any other career. Currently I am attending Canisius College and completing my degree for Educational Administration and Leadership.
    I began my career as a teacher aide at School #84. I have worked as a special education teacher at Riverside Academy, School #59 The Zoo Component, Broadway Village School #57, Westminster School #68/Charter School and  Harvey Austin School #97. This year I am excited to be working at Frederick Law Olmsted School #64 in an 8:1:1 class. My philosophy of teaching is to build strong and lasting relationships with my students and their families, place a high emphasis on respect and academics to prepare students for the real world.
