Professor of Education
Foundations of Education
I serve as Professor of Education and teach graduate and undergraduate courses in Philosophy of Education, Educational Psychology, and the graduate course Diversity and Social Issues in Education. I have been teaching at Cedarville since 1993.
I earned my B. S. (1983), M. S. (1987), and Ph.D. (1995) from the University of Wisconsin. I also serve as a visiting professor at Columbia International University (Columbia, South Carolina) and am on the faculty of the Latin Evangelical Theological University in Dominican Republic.
Prior to coming to Cedarville I taught high school and middle school (primarily history and economics) in both public and Christian school settings.
My wife Teresea is a 6th grade teacher at Xenia Christian Elementary School. Our family attends Shawnee Hills Baptist Church where I also teach an adult Sunday School class.
For more information, please see Dr. Baumann's Curriculum Vita..
I am particularly interested in the field of philosophy of education but over the last several years my research and writing has been primarily focused on the areas of educating for worldview transformation and biblical integration.
I am an avid reader and also enjoy working out. I particularly enjoy biking in warmer weather and using an indoor rowing machine in the winter. There are actual races for indoor rowing in which I have competed.
