Associate of Arts Degree Elementary Education Major Music Minor
Hi, my name is Cassie Bastian. Since 2nd grade, I wanted to be a teacher. 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 we decided to move to Valley City, ND. I graduated from VCSU and received my Elementary Education major with a music minor on "steroids" ( I went back to get my music major but moved to Casselton before totally finishing :-) This is my 15th year of teaching! I have taught music, science, and art! I enjoyed teaching K-5 music for the first 2 years at Central Cass. This is my 3rd year of teaching K-3 music. I also enjoy the privilege of directing our fabulous 4th/5th Central Cass Children's Choir.
I try every day to make music fun, interactive and interesting! We use instruments, technology, dance and our voices to explore the world of music!
Chris and I have been married for 21 years and we have 2 amazing girls, Emma (16) and Ava (9). I love to sing, compose music, decorate my home, garden, photography, art, ride bike and be with my family!
Teamwork makes the Dreamwork! ~ Keep Smilin' ~ Sharing is Caring! are a couple of my mottos!
