About Me


Welcome to Mrs. Baer's website. I am excited to be working with you this year and look forward to getting to know you. I have been teaching at Union Middle School for many years. UMS is a great school and I love being a part of the UMS family. I attended San Jose State University and live in San Jose with my husband and two children. I spend most of my time at soccer games as both of my  children play competitive soccer so our weekends are busy. We also love to attend San Jose Earthquakes games. When I have free time I enjoy scrapbooking, reading and hanging out with my friends and family. In my years at UMS I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade mathematics. 8th grade is my favorite grade and curriculum :)

This year I teach Math 8 (which prepares students for Integrated 1 in high school) and Integrated Mathematics 1 (IM1), which prepares students for Integrated 2 in high school.

I post the weeks homework in my daily slide show (found on my website) and in Google Classroom. I update grades about once a week in PowerSchool. Please be sure to check your grades regularly (at least once a week) and see me with any questions. I am in my room daily for help at break, and at lunch (by appointment). I am in my room after school too, except when I have yard duty (every other week). Please stop by and see me for help as needed. 

I look forward to a successful school year with you.
