Breaking News: Congratulations to Mrs. Baker For Being Awarded Teacher of the Month

Mrs. Baker is the winner of this month's K 98.3’s Teacher Of The Month

She will receive a stack of free passes to the Long Island Aquarium for her and her students.

There is another contest for January. In this contest, Dutch Lane's Ms. Masterson has been nominated. If you wish to vote for her, go to to cast your vote for the Teacher of the Month.

If this is your first visit, you will need to set up a free, no obligation account on the station’s website. The short questionnaire helps them better serve their listening audience.

Mrs. Baker has been teaching here in Hicksville for 18 years. She has taught grades from Kindergarten through fourth grade and is currently one of our fourth grade teachers.

Mrs. Baker says “Teaching is life-fulfilling work. I love the challenge of identifying the best instructional and support strategies for my students and delight in the rewards of each student’s “a-ha” moment that ultimately leads to growth and continued success.”

Her classroom is a place where students feel welcome and can access the resources needed to thrive academically and socially in our educational setting. It serves as a home base for her students, providing security and comfort when needed, but also confidence for each student to grow with the rest of their classmates and participate in school wide activities.

Mrs. Baker is thoughtful, humorous, generous with her time, and committed to helping each and every one of her students thrive and succeed.
