Kate Baker Joins OEA as Advocacy Specialist at TCTA

Kate Baker has joined the Oklahoma Education Association as an advocacy specialist assigned to work with the Tulsa Classroom Teachers Association.

She spent 10 years in Tulsa Public Schools classrooms – seven as a second-grade teacher and three as a teaching assistant. She earned her bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Oklahoma State University.

Kate held several leadership roles as a member of TCTA. She was a march coordinator for the March for Education during the statewide walkout in 2018, served on the TCTA board of directors, and attended the Harvard Symposium to study job actions taken in April 2018.

“Education is the core of all we do as a society,” Kate said. “I believe by advocating for our teachers, we make education better for our students. As the advocacy specialist at TCTA, I have the opportunity to influence education in Tulsa.”

Kate’s husband, Jesse, is an accountant for Creek Nations Casinos. They have two children: Oliver, 7, and Eleanor, 3 months.
