A Little About Mrs. Basciano....

Although originally from the Northeast Ohio area, I have called the Evans area home for the past 21 years! I graduated from the University of South Carolina-Aiken with a B.S. in Biology in 2002 and earned both my M.Ed. (2007) and Ed.S. (2011) degrees from Augusta State University. I have taught in Aiken, Richmond, and Columbia counties. The 2020-2021 school year will be my 18th year teaching and my 4th year at Lakeside High School. Needless to say, I am beyond thrilled to be a panther! I am gifted certified in mathematics for grades 4-12 and in science & social studies for grades 4-8. I have also completed the Level-Up Challenge to become an EdTECH Innovator and have attained Google Level 1 and Level 2 certification.

My husband's name is Peter. He is an Associate Professor of Finance at Augusta University. We have two adorable children: an 11-year-old son named Alexander and a 7 1/2-year-old daughter named Ashton. We also have one really active and large (90+ lbs) Labrador Retriever named Apollo.

My favorite football teams are the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Pittsburgh Steelers! Outside of teaching high school, I also hold a real estate salesperson license and real estate instructor license.

My Instructional Philosophy

I expect my students to develop reasoning skills that will allow them to evaluate information outside of its given context, and to discover how very much society depends on their achievement. Therefore, rising above instructing everyday content knowledge, I engage my students in activities and projects that build upon their self-esteem and unique knowledge set. Accordingly, I attempt to begin each lesson with an intriguing activity, hoping to spark my students’ interests. After thorough discussion of the topic, the students typically engage in a second activity used to synthesize their understanding of the topic. Consequently, my overall goal is to teach in a manner that produces students who will be productive members of society far beyond their adolescent schooldays.
