Dale Baker started her academic career studying anthropology and archaeology, but later took up work as a substitute teacher while pondering her future. This was a fortuitous decision because she discovered that when students were presented with engaging science activities, they were motivated to learn. She earned an EdD in science education from Rutgers University. Dale is a full professor at Arizona State University, where she teaches courses on research design, equity and assessment issues in science education, and courses that help teachers infuse engineering concepts into their curriculum.
