Administration

 

Mr. Joseph V. Connick IV was supposed to be a fourth generation police officer with the city of Mobile. The Joseph Vincent Connicks before me were all sergeants on the police department and all married a woman named Mary. I married a Baker graduate named Shan and have four children that live in my house; Chandler, Gabrielle, Timothy and my nephew Dakota. I graduated from Davidson High School in 1986 and went to Patrick Henry Junior College on a baseball scholarship. After graduating from Patrick Henry in 1988 with an Associate in Arts Degree, I was awarded another baseball Scholarship to attend Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. I graduated from Samford with my Bachelors in Science degree (Physical Education) in 1991 and was awarded the Bernice Finger award for the top Physical Education graduate in the state. I began my teaching career in Bessemer, Alabama at Jonesboro Elementary school and taught for one year. I left teaching to pursue a calling to the Catholic priesthood in Covington, Louisiana. After two years of study, I graduated from the pre-theology program and moved back to Mobile to start teaching again. My first job back was teaching Special Education at Blount High School and coaching football and baseball. I was fortunate enough to be a part of a coaching staff that won two state championships. After three years of teaching at Blount, I became the Physical Education teacher at The Continuous Learning Center. I taught troubled middle and high school students for eight years and coached at Shaw High School for two years, St. Paul’s for two years and finally at Baker. While at Baker, I was fortunate enough to be a part of Coach Glover’s coaching staff and we were able to win a baseball state championship in 2005. I then pursued an administrative degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. After graduating with a Master’s in Education, I was hired as an administrative intern at Mary G. Montgomery High School. My first position as an administrator was at Leflore High School and after one year I was moved to Murphy High School for the next three years. I was fortunate to move to Baker where I have been for the last four years. Baker is an outstanding school with outstanding students, faculty and staff. I am blessed to be here and look forward to the exciting dynamics of the upcoming school year.
