Partner Teacher: Ms. Chardonnay Rushing

Hello everyone! My name is Brandi Bastian Kea and I teach fourth grade ELA and Social Studies. I recently got married this past July. You may refer to me as Mrs. Bastian (pronounced like Sebastian without the "se") or Mrs. Kea (pronounced key). This will be my third year teaching, as well as my third year at THE D.C. Reeves Elementary. I had the great privilege of representing D.C. Reeves as the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year, as well as representing Tangipahoa Parish as the Elementary District Teacher of the Year. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with my B.S. in Elementary Education Grades 1-5 and am continuing my education at Southeastern to get a M.Ed in Curriculumn and Instruction. I can proudly say I found my passion and am lucky to not consider my job "work". When you send your children to me, I am accepting the responsibility of taking care of them just as you would at home! I am looking forward to a LEGENDARY YEAR!!!
