Flowing Wells School District is not only saying hello to a new year, but a new superintendent as well.  The 2013-2014 school year will be the first full school year for Dr. David Baker.

Tucson News Now spoke with Baker, who said he is fortunate to have been with the district for about 20 years, first working as a teacher, then as an administrator.

Baker's new approach for the district – focus more on writing and creating and defending arguments.  He also stated that he wants to include more critical thinking in the curriculum; specifically recognizing problems, then analyzing those problem. 

This can be done for both English and in Math classes.

According to Baker this will be the theme for academics across the district for the next few years.
