Lindsay Kasten was raised in Baton Rouge, LA. She attended Louisiana State University, where one of her professors in an instructional methods course saw in her the potential to work with gifted children. She provided the opportunity for Lindsay to complete field experience in a gifted Year 4 class and from that moment she was hooked. Upon graduating, Lindsay reached out to gifted sites in East Baton Rouge and landed her dream job of teaching gifted Year 4 students in 2004. As well as teaching children, she has a great passion for helping other educators through mentorship and presentations. She is currently teaching gifted Year 4 students at Parkview Elementary in Baton Rouge. Lindsay's two daughters have both participate in the gifted program in East Baton Rouge schools.
