  • What I love most about Kindergarten: I love seeing students explore their interests, become more independent, develop curiosity, and build new friendships! Creating a love for learning with hands-on experiences is so much fun!
  • Fun Fact: I am also a licensed cosmetologist!

Mrs. Calhoun

  • Interests: working out, spending time with family, relaxing by the pool, grabbing starbucks, and shopping.
  • The thing I love most about Kindergarten is watching students turn into independent individuals with a love for learning.
  • Fun fact: I’m left handed!

Mrs. Baker

Principal

I can honestly tell you that I have my dream job! I come from a long line of educators, so I guess you can say that it was in my blood to become an administrator. My great grandfather was a superintendant and my grandfather and mother were both elementary principals. My husband and I have been married for 8 years and we have two little boys: Ames (6) and Abbott (2). Next year will be my fourth year here at Canyon Creek, and my 10th year in education. I can't wait to come to school everyday and work with your students. Kindergarteners in particular amaze me. I love watching the growth that we get to see as the year goes on. We will have an in person Kindergarten Roundup on May 23rd. I look forward to seeing everyone then!

I am honored to be part of the CCE family. This next year will be my second year at Canyon Creek, my 6th year as an assistant principal, and my 15th year as an educator. My husband and I have been married for almost 13 years and have 2 imaginative boys. My goal as an educator is to provide the educational experience and environment I want for my own kids. Today may be the day that makes a difference for even one student. It is an opportunity that may never come again.

Year At A Glance

Specials

Next year will be my 24th year of teaching and each year feels like the first when I walk in because the students make it so exciting for me! I am passionate about teaching students how to live a healthy and ACTIVE lifestyle and why it is important to be safe in our movements. PE is fun and games, but it is so many other important life skills too that it keeps each day new and exciting! I look forward to meeting your new Cougar!

Music

Coach Robertson
PE

In music class we use music in all kinds of ways. We move our bodies to music by playing games, dancing, and acting it out; we make music by singing and playing instruments; and, we think about music by the way it makes us feel, how it sounds, and how to read and write music. Next year will be my sixth year of teaching and I am so excited to meet your new Cougar as we make music together!

Teaching, guiding and inspiring creativity to my students, has always been a deep passion of mine. Creating art is a great way for one to express themselves to others. It is very important to let my students know that they are able to do anything they set their minds to! ❤ That is just one of the dozens of reasons, why I love teaching art to my students here at Canyon Creek!
