Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Peter Baker, I’ve been living in Manila since July of 2015. I moved with my wife, who is an English teacher at ISM, and our young daughter Alice (pictured above). I teach High School Learning Support and was recently named Program Leader for our department. I love learning support because I really get to know my students, everyday is filled with unexpected surprises and watching my kids succeed is awesome.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, right outside of San Francisco in California. Go Giants! I went to NorthEastern University in Boston where I studied History. In my free time I like reading, going for runs, and hanging with my family. We are still looking for the perfect vacation spot in the Philippines and are always open to new suggestions. I drive a beat up Ford Explorer whose are numbered, and I usually cook soup on Sundays.
