After 30 years of teaching elementary school, Baldry wrote Home: The True School (J.M. LeBel Enterprises), in which she encourages parents to educate their children at home or consider delaying their children's entry into the school system. "No matter how compassionate and conscientious a teacher may be," she wrote, "it is only a parent who gazes in wonderment upon a child and takes an irrational interest in his most normal and quite-to-be-expected performances." Baldry is also the author of Homo Benevolens (Ptarmigan Press, 2001). She lives south of Campbell River.
