• My name is Mary Baum and I am absolutely thrilled to be your child's 4th grade teacher here at Boon Elementary!  I have taught for the past 13 years including our SSI department, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade!  My goal this year is to share with my students a love for learning and the desire to explore and to want to learn more!  I can't wait to get to know your precious child and learn about their interests and strengths to help them gain more knowledge about the big world around them. 
    To share a little about myself, I am married to my college sweetheart, Larry, and we will celebrate our 25th anniversary on the 30th of September.  We have two kids, Megan (21), and Cameron (19).  I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.  I am also an avid gardener and animal lover so I spend much time tending to our yard and 4 dogs. 
    I know we are going to have a fabulous year in fouth grade!  If you have any questions or concerns, email me and I will respond as soon as possible.
