Meet Almena Baskett, 2nd Grade Teacher

Hello family and friends of FAA!

My name is Almena Baskett and I am the second grade teacher here at Friendship Academy of the Arts. I am very excited and eager to work with you and your child and being apart of the FAA family. I attended Minnesota State University, Mankato for 5 years and received my BS in Elementary Education and started my teaching career with the FAA family.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine since I was about seven years old. I knew this was my calling and no matter the obstacle I knew I wanted to get to this point right here.

I am originally from Chicago, Illinois and lived there for ten years until my family and I moved to the suburbs of Chicago. When I began school in Minnesota, I knew I would have an abundance of opportunities that I was absolutely ready to take on. I enjoy fishing with my dad, reading mystery novels, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am eager to build a relationship with every student, parent, and staff member here at Friendship Academy! I am looking forward to having a fun and productive year! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
