Who We Are


Mayte Alvarado


This is my first year teaching and I have been very excited to teach my first class of Kindergarteners! I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Eastern Oregon University. I love to see students grow their skills and see them excited to come to school to learn new things each day as I learn something new from them in return. I hope to teach for many more years!

    This is my 30th year teaching for Baker School District. My favorite grade level is Kindergarten. Regardless of where they start I always see growth. I look forward to working with a new group of kids every year.

      This is my 22nd year of teaching and 20th year of teaching Kindergarten.I taught in Idaho Falls for 18 years and now at BELC.

      My degree is from Lewis-Clark State College.

      I love Kindergarten because students love school and each day is the same yet different!
