Kristi Baer | Lakeview Academy The veteran science teacher can’t be stagnant in the classroom.Actually, she prefers to be outside of it while teaching.“I think that’s the great thing about teaching science is that it changes all the time — it’s not stagnant at all,” Kristi Baer said. “There’s always new things being learned and discovered. That inquiry makes me motivated to continue that.”Baer has been teaching since 1987, starting as a third-grade teacher and teaching many subjects at both the elementary and middle school levels.Her passion for teaching has remained.“I love explaining things to children,” she said.
