Hi, my name is Chesne Baska and this will be my tenth year teaching.  I love being part of the Stump faculty, and I am really looking forward to another year of teaching 2nd grade!  I grew up in Stuarts Draft and this community is very special to me.  I attended Mary Baldwin College and received my degree in Psychology, and my elementary teaching license.  I have been married for  10 years to my husband, Jason, who teaches at Stuarts Draft Middle School. We have a 7 year old daughter and a 5 year old son who both attend Stump.   It has been so much fun getting to spend time with my kids this summer. We spent time camping, traveling, and swimming!!  We traveled to Tennessee and the Chesapeake Bay with our family and friends.  My husband and I visited the Dominican Republic and enjoyed our time exploring the island.  I also had the privilege of attending an amazing literacy conference this past June.  Teachers are learners too :)  I am excited to implement some new reading and writing strategies in my classroom this year.  Summer break has been restful, but I am gearing up for being back in Room 14. I am anticipating another wonderful school year and please feel free to contact me at any time!
