What is the difference between a baker and a pastry chef?

I'm going into highschool and the school is able to give us suggestions for classes for what we want to be when we enter "the real world" And on the application thing mentioning a bunch of jobs, it says both baker and pastry chef. I've always thought they were the same thing. And for nearly three years I've wanted to be a baker, but I'm not sure whether or not I want to be a baker or pastry chef, because I dont know the difference. Thank you for any answers well If I want to open a bakery, then would I be a pastry chef?
