Born on the island of Newfoundland, to a proud and hardworking family of Irish and English descent, Mr. Baker was raised on a steady diet of hockey, Marvel Comics, and homemade bread. From early morning hockey practices to trips to the comic book shop, he developed a love for both early mornings and imagination.
Years later, upon completion of his first round of university, Mr. Baker found his way to Korea to begin a life of exploration and adventure. Quickly he adapted to his new surroundings, enjoying the sights, sounds, and tastes of his new home. Finding the head of the classroom to be where he felt comfortable, he returned to Canada on two occasions to increase his teaching strength. First to complete a course on ESL teaching, and second to complete a degree in Elementary Education at the University of Ottawa. Finally, he found his new base of operations- Cheongna Dalton School - even more to his liking.
With his family he enjoys exploring the areas in and around Cheongna and all about Korea. He gains his powers from the likes of spicy foods and strong coffee. He enjoys the passion of baking, passed on to him by his mother and father, as he is passing on to his young sidekick, Mina. He also still reads comic books, as well as other fiction, and non-fiction alike.
He is looking forward to the 2017/2018 year where he hopes to train a new group of crime fighters in the deadly arts of proper grammar, how to turn a group of paragraphs in to a sensible passage of writing, and all the maths and science we can think of. Together, we will train day after day. Together, we can save tomorrow!
