Associate of Arts Degree Elementary Education Major Music Minor
Hi, my name is Cassie Bastian. After I graduated high school from Rosebud, Montana I earned my Associate of Arts degree from Miles Community College. I transferred to MSU-Billings for a year, married my "Prince Charming" Chris and moved to Valley City, ND. I graduated from VCSU and received my Elementary Education major with a music minor. I experienced teaching music, science, and art for my first 10 years at Maple Valley! The next 5 years I was blessed to teach elementary music at Central Cass. I loved teaching music and directing our CC Children's Choir.
Since 2nd grade, I wanted to be a teacher. I was so excited to come full circle in my career and last year was my 2nd year of 2nd-grade! I tell my "fantabulous" class, numerous times, thank you for making my dreams come true! I LOVE teaching 2nd grade and I'm so excited to experience my thrilling 3rd year in 2nd grade! 😍 Creating a positive, caring, safe, fun, and inquisitive learning environment are our classroom goals!
Chris and I have been married for 24 years and we have 2 incredible girls, Emma (19) and Ava (12). I love to sing, compose music, decorate my home, garden, photography, art, ride bike, and be with my family!
Teamwork makes the Dreamwork! ~ Time to be Kind ~ Keep Smilin' ~ Sharing is Caring! These are a couple of my mottos! 😊
