Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th Grade!!
My purpose for writing this page is to give you some information about your teacher. I am JaNae Basinger and I graduated from K-State in 1994, with a BS in Elementary Education and a math emphasis. Six summers ago, I graduated from K-State once again with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. Over the years, I have taught at Lakewood Middle School, Oakdale Elementary and currently, Heunser Elementary. What I enjoy most about teaching is the fact that I have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many students. When I observe a student that was once struggling with a concept and then master it, I feel very satisfied. Another aspect of teaching that I feel is important is that of being a good, supportive role model for each of my students. I remember in high school several of my own teachers who fulfilled this role for me and it made a tremendous difference.
I am looking forward to working with you this year at Heusner Elementary!
