Dr. Shane Baker

Born and raised in New Hope, Alabama, I am a 1992 graduate of NHHS. After graduating high school, I began a 14 year adventure in higher education. My wife of 26 years (also my high school sweetheart) and I have spent our adult years throughout the Southeast. We have lived in Huntsville, Alabama; New Orleans, Louisiana; Decatur, Georgia (through Hurricane Katrina); Raleigh, North Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; and back home to New Hope. I have worked and taught in higher education for the better part of the last 25 years. Now we are back home and loving it.

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids. They enjoy camping, and we enjoy the beach. I spend copious amounts of time reading and researching various topics including the best methods for teaching. I am thankful to be back home where it is an honor and privilege to be teaching at my alma mater.
