# of Years Teaching: 7

Katey Basye was born in Twin Falls, Idaho but grew up in the Treasure Valley until her Sophomore year of high school. Her family decided to move to McCall, Idaho. She met her now husband, Matt, that year and they have been together ever since. She graduated from McCall-Donnelly High School in 2007. After graduation, they moved down to attend Boise State University. During Katey’s time in college she also was able to become a firefighter and EMT. College graduation brought on travel for her husband and they moved around southern Idaho for a few years before finally coming home to Valley County. Katey graduated with her Bachelors of Arts- Elementary Education in 2012 from Western Governors University. She taught 3rd grade in the Twin Falls School District as well as Title I. Once Katey and her family moved home she taught at a private school so her children were able to attend with her. Katey graduated from her Masters of Teaching, Mathematics Education 5-9. In 2017, she began her career at the Cascade Elementary School. Katey and her family enjoy being outdoors whenever possible. She has three children ages 8,7 and 5.

Hopes for the upcoming school year: My hopes for the school year is to provide a welcoming and safe environment for my students and families. I hope to challenge my students and let them find their true potential and for them to fall in love with life learning.

Why does Mrs. Basye teach?
I teach because I am a lifelong learner and those students teach me something new EVERYDAY!
