Mrs. Lori Baker

Professional Biography

Shortly after graduating from high school, I obtained my Executive Secretary Certificate from St. John’s School of Business.  Several years later, I later attended Western New England College in Springfield, Massachusetts.  My education was then interrupted by the blessings of motherhood.   I recently decided it was time to return to my educational pursuits.  Accordingly, I am very excited to be enrolled at Liberty University Online.  I currently have my AA in interdisciplinary studies/business, and I am completing my BS in interdisciplinary studies with cognates in business administration and education.  I have worked in various service and manufacturing companies over the years.  My favorite job was working as the assistant to the administrator at Baptist Village Christian Academy in East Longmeadow from 2005 until the school closed in 2008.   I feel very blessed to have joined the CCS family in 2014.

Personal Biography

I have been married to my high school sweetheart for the past thirty-five years.  We have three awesome children – a married daughter, Chelsea Dancy, who is employed as a teacher at CCS; a son who recently graduated from Cedarville University in Ohio and is now pursuing his master’s degree; and a high school senior who is obsessed with the great game of baseball and plans to attend Dallas Baptist University after graduation.  I am a first-time grandma to the most handsome little man…with another wee-one on the way!   I am also a daylily enthusiast.  I currently grow over one hundred different varieties of daylilies.  I also love reading, spending time with family, and watching my sons play baseball.

Educational Philosophy

I have always loved learning and I love God’s truth.  Accordingly, I believe working at a Christian school is my ideal vocation.  Prior to coming to CCS in 2014, I prayed for the opportunity to work in Christian education once again.  Obviously, God answered my prayer and I am so grateful.    I love CCS’s goal of partnering with parents in educating and discipling children for God’s ultimate glory.

Colossians 2:2-3:  “That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. “
