About Mr. Basom

​​Greetings parents and students! Here is a little information about me: 

My name is Mr. Basom and I teach 5th grade math and science at Twin Valley Middle School. I love teaching 5th graders because they are so awesome! Currently this is my 10th year teaching at Twin Valley. Before TVMS I taught one year of 7th grade at Lancaster Mennonite Middle School. I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and attended Lancaster Mennonite High School. I later graduated from Eastern University with a B.A. degree in Elementary Education. I am happily married to my wife Jen and we have two beautiful girls, Olivia and Ella. Some of my  favorite things include spending time outside with my family, playing sports, skiing, listening to music, cheering on my Chicago Bears, and reading history books. My favorite book is In Harm's Way by Doug Stanton. In addition to my B.A. degree in education, I also hold a master's degree in education from Cabrini College and a master's degree in classroom technology from Wilkes University.
