Lisa Baker

Lisa Baker graduated from Aurora University with her MSW in 2013. She began working in education as a paraprofessional in 2001 where she worked with mainstreamed and self-contained special education students in a public high school for 5 years. She then worked in a small therapeutic day school as a behavior specialist with outside placed special education ED high school students. It was during this time there that she discovered her passion for working in alternative education settings. Her first position as a school social worker was in a therapeutic day school where she worked for 4 years before moving to an in-district alternative setting the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. She strongly believes that all students can be successful given the right environment, support, and understanding. Lisa is currently enrolled in the Loyola SMHAPP Certificate.
