One of Joe’s favorite TNTP traditions? The office’s penchant for potlucks. Joe loves getting to contribute to TNTP’s food festivities, and he particularly loves the Brooklyn office’s annual holiday bakeoff. Last year, Joe entered his homemade bourbon pecan pies—and despite a disappointing loss, he’s doubling his efforts to take home this year’s prize. After all, his last name is Baker.
Joe spends most of his time in schools working with principals, instructional coaches, and teachers to help build exceptional classrooms where kids thrive. As a member of TNTP’s Training & Instruction Team, he also plans development strategies for TNTP’s NYC Teaching Fellows. When he’s not in schools in NYC, Joe spends time training teachers across the country.
