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 her with the opportunity to complete field experience in a gifted fourth grade class, and from that moment on, she was hooked. Upon graduating, she landed her dream job of teaching gifted fourth graders in 2004. She is currently teaching gifted fourth graders at Parkview Elementary in Baton Rouge.
