About Mrs. Baird
I began my teaching career thirty-four years ago, and taught elementary GATE classes at Wishon, Gibson, Manchester, and Powers-Ginsburg before making the move to Computech nine years ago to teach seventh grade Core. I am VERY glad I came here because I love my job!
I have been married for 32 years to Neil Baird, who is the GATE Program Specialist for Fresno Unified. He probably tested many of you for GATE. We have three children, all of whom were in the Edison Computech six-year program. Erin, 29, is the theatre teacher at Edison and Computech, and is planning a wedding to E.J. Hinojosa next summer. Caitlin, 26, works in children's and camping ministries, and often substitutes for teachers at Computech and Edison. Gavin, 21, graduated from Edison High in 2011, and now attends Fresno State as a Political Science/International Relations major. He coaches volleyball for both girls and boys at Edison.
Some of my favorite things are reading; Garfield; Little Thinker Beanies-especially Shakespeare and Einstein; spending time with my family and friends; shopping; and watching my students' reactions to Humor of the Day.
