Daurie Bastian Portrait

Daurie Bastian

Teacher Aide II

I was born on July 6, 1960 in Reno Nevada to Deon and Lorraine Rundle. I have one older sister, Laurie. Laurie hated me because I took away her attention so she put me in the dryer and turned it on. I grew up in Sparks, Nevada and graduated from Reed High School in 1978. I went to college and majored in special education and minored in musical theatre. I quit after two years. I married David Bastian on September 22, 1984 we were blessed with a son who we adopted on May 31, 1985. We have always said,"We had to get married since Bradley came eight months after we were married." We moved to the Boise area in 1988 and I had a daycare for 10 years, worked at a school, and finally began working with special needs kids in May 2007. I moved to Logan in December 2007. I feel very at home here. I love my job at BRASC and find it very rewarding.
