About Seth Bakker

Seth is a husband and father of 4 daughters. Yes, that’s right–4 daughters! To keep some sanity, he works at an elementary school, which always happens to be relaxing, calm, and quiet, right? He enjoys learning with his students, trying new ideas and tools out, and laughing at all of the quirky things that happen during a “regular” school day. He’s been involved in Christian education as a student, teacher/administrator for a few decades.Seth enjoys reading, gardening, biking, listening to music, and watching Seahawks football (whether they win or not, preferably if they win).
