Ms. Baykal taught elementary level English language to grades 1,2 and 3 along with support teaching. She implemented the IB program of inquiry and the five elements of the Primary Years Program and collaborated with homeroom and subject teachers to produce the best possible results in the units of inquiry.

She loves the Montessori method because it is complete compared to other methods and it brings out the best in the child, allows children to decide and choose their own work and work as long as they like. She enjoys living in San Diego because she feels like she is on vacation the whole time and it reminds her of her hometown. She has two passions in life: traveling and working with children in an educational environment. She is happy that she can do both at the same time. Her biggest dream is to have her own Montessori school one day.
