Scott & Tina Baird: Members At-Large

Scott and Tina feel blessed to have found LACS for many reasons.  A Faith-based education is something they strongly value; therefore LACS’s emphasis on a Christ-centered education, along with small class sizes, is in line with their vision for their children’s schooling.  They feel that LAD is a wonderful program for their daughter, Abby, who faces learning differences.  The Bairds enrolled Abby in Kindergarten this year, along with her brother, Jack, who is in 1st grade.  Tina grew up in the Bay Area and earned a BSE (Bachelor of Science in Economics & Business Administration) from Saint Mary’s College, and then got her J.D. at USF Law School.  She practiced as both an appellate and litigation attorney until having children, at which time she chose to dedicate her life to raising Jack and Abby.  Scott is in his 27th year of private practice in Palo Alto as a Maxillofacial Surgeon.  He did his undergraduate work at Santa Clara University with a degree in Psychology, followed by post-graduate work at Washington University in St. Louis.  His surgical training was at USC Medical Center.  The couple have lived in Menlo Park for the last 11 years.
