Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Angela D. Baker

Hello parents and friends of Goshen Elementary!  I am so excited about working with your children!  

You may want to know who I am.  I spent 24 years as a chorus and general music teacher in a middle school in Augusta, Georgia.  Four years ago I came to Goshen Elementary and I absolutely LOVE Goshen!  You have some wonderfully talented children.

I received my education at the following schools:

Associate in Music -  Truett McConnell College, Cleveland Georgia

Bachelor of Arts in Music Education -  Mercer University, Macon Georgia

Master of Arts in Religious Education with a focus on Childhood Education -  Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas


I started playing piano and taking piano lessons at the age of 7.  Music was very important to me.  I sang in children's choirs, youth choirs and adult choirs in church.  I began playing the flute in 6th grade and singing in the school chorus in 7th grade and was able to attend college on music scholarships.  

I still play piano at my home church and have been there for 28 years.  

If you are a musical person, you know what I mean when I say that my music teachers helped to form the person I am today.  I hope to be the kind of teacher that inspires your children to do their very best at whatever they would like to achieve.
