About Mrs. Bast:
I have been an educator since 1990. For the majority of those 27 years, I taught 4th grade. Currently, I am the Early Learning Principal (4K-1st Grade) of IGEMS, and I am our district's Library Media Specialist.  I have a degree from UW-Eau Claire in elementary education with a minor in language arts, and I have a master's degree in educational administration from UW-Platteville. I am currently finishing my certification as a library media specialist at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. At IGEMS, I am fortunate to be assisted in the LMC by Mrs. Cheryl Lee for several hours each day and Mrs. Rita Kite one day out of the week.

I enjoy reading, using technology, and working with both students and teachers, especially in collaborative and leadership roles. As a school library media specialist, I see myself in a unique position. One where I can encourage curiosity, foster creativity and instill a love for learning in all of our students. It is truly my dream job!
