Subjects Taught


War Eagle!!



Welcome! My name is Rachel Baker and this is the Preschool (3 year olds) Special Ed Classroom site. We are also known as the SDD Class - Significant Developmental Delay. We are located within the Anne Jones Memorial Preschool at First Baptist Church Calhoun. I came to Calhoun 23 years ago from the beautiful AUBURN UNIVERSITY to teach the Moderate/Severe classroom at Swain Elementary. I loved teaching that population and still stay in touch with several 'old' students!  The opportunity arose to teach the Preschool Special Ed class and I jumped at the chance!  This is such a fun age and we have such a great time each day.  We focus on all areas of development - cognitive, language, social/emotional, self help, and physical. We spend time each day in a classroom with typical 3 year olds to encourage their communication and social development. 

My daughter, Payton, is a 9th grader at Sonoraville High School.  Sandy Ralston is the parapro in our class. This is her first year with us, but she has worked in the Preschool Special Ed program for 8 years. She is a wonderful addition to our class!
