Josh Baker, Assistant Principal
Hello Coy families! I currently reside in Kettering with my wife Katie of 9 years, and our daughters Audrey (age 5) and Anna (age 3). Prior to joining Coy Middle School, I taught in the Centerville City School district for ten years as one of the district band directors. In Centerville, I taught various music courses and instrumental ensembles in grades 6-12 at Centerville High School and all three Centerville Middle Schools. I also served as the principal designate of the East Unit at Centerville High School for five years. Before teaching in Centerville, I taught grades 5-12 instrumental music for the Greeneview Local School District.
I am a graduate of Wright State University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Music Education. I completed my master’s degree in Educational Leadership and obtained my K-12 principal’s license through the University of Dayton. In 2015 I was named the outstanding alumni of Wright State University’s School of Music and in 2017 I was named the Centerville Education Foundation Outstanding Teacher and Hall of Fame Inductee. I am a lifelong learner and am constantly looking for ways to improve educational experiences for students. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, traveling, and listening to music. I am very excited to be a part of Coy Middle School and look forward to working with our incredible staff, students, and parents!
