Madison Basinger, a 4th grade math and science teacher at Madge Griffith Elementary School, is the focus of the Brazosport ISD Teacher Spotlight Award. In addition to her regular assignment, she also sponsors the Math Club and the Harry Potter Club after school, is a PLC leader, mentors a new teacher and volunteers with Parental Involvement Activities. This is Madison’s fourth year to teach in Brazosport ISD. Her mother, who retired from BISD, taught for thirty years and had a great influence on her choice of education as a career. She saw her mother impacting the lives of children and she wanted to do the same. Karen Matt, the Griffith Principal, stated, “Ms. Basinger goes above and beyond to make Griffith a great place to work and to go to school.” Madison Basinger is one of the many teachers in BISD who is setting the standard for educational excellence.
