# A Little About Dr. Basciano . . .

A Little About Dr. Basciano . . .

### Although originally from the Northeast Ohio area, I have called the Evans area home for the past 25 years. I earned my B.S. in Biology in 2002 from the University of South Carolina-Aiken and my M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction (2007), Ed.S. in Teaching & Learning (2011), and Ed.D. in Educational Innovation (2024) from Augusta (State) University. I have taught in Aiken, Richmond, and Columbia counties. The 2024-2025 school year will be my 22nd year teaching and my 8th year at Lakeside High School. 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 currently serve as the Central East Representative for the Georgia Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

# My Instructional Philosophy

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.
