Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Linda Bassat
Linda Bassat began teaching at Dayton's Bluff Elementary in 2000. She has a Masters of Education and Bachelors of Science from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She has taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade.
She spends her summers on the lake fishing for Crappies, Blue Gill and Bass. She enjoys catching Northern Pike the best because they put up a good fight. When she's not fishing up north, she likes to sit outdoors on the swinging chair with her 2 year old granddaughter. Together they yell, "plane!" everytime one goes by. She lives by an airport so...
She lives on the East Side of Saint Paul with her husband and four children. Two of her children are in middle school and two of them are in college. She also has two dogs, a Miniture Pincher and a Pitbull Terrier. They keep her very busy with school, homework and sports.
Dayton's Bluff Elementary is very special to her for several reasons: her mother was a teacher at the Bluff when she was young; she attended classes at the Early Childhood Family Program with her first son; and she gets to meet so many wonderful teachers, families and children.
A quote she often uses with her children at home and in school is "If you CONCIEVE, and you BELIEVE, you will ACHIEVE!"
