Ms. Kortisha Baker

Welcome to a fun and exciting school year at Dorothy Hains Elementary School! I am most eager to meeting you and being your child’s second-grade teacher. 


            My life has many things that involve endurance of passion, and one of my greatest is to teach.  My eagerness to educate, mentor, and most of all make a difference in a child’s life has encouraged me to challenge myself professionally and pursue a career in teaching.  I am extremely blessed and honored to have the opportunity to work with your child and teach second grade.  I am an honor graduate of a Historical Black College and University (HBCU), The Fort Valley State University, a published author of three children’s books, and I have worked in the Richmond and Columbia County school system for the past seven years.

We will have an exciting year as they develop into logical thinkers; As a teacher, I want to ensure that my young apprentices are emotionally and mentally healthy in order to be resilient in their everyday life whether it is academically, physically or socially and I need your help to do so.  I am very enthused to work with you, your child and Dorothy Hains Elementary School to achieve each of these goals for all our students.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
