Mr. Nathan Bassett

Nathan Bassett is one of the high school history and theology teachers at Lincoln Lutheran. He began teaching in 1995 and has coached the high school boys' soccer team since 1997. He attended Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska to get his bachelor’s degree in education, and then went to UNL to get his master’s degree. Other than teaching, Mr. Bassett enjoys reading, bicycling, walking, kayaking and spending time with his family, going camping, traveling, and watching hockey, soccer, and football. Mr. Bassett grew up in a northern suburb of Detroit called Fraser. He was the third of four kids. He has an older brother and sister, and a younger brother.  His favorite memory from childhood is when they went sledding in the winter-down his neighbor’s garage roof! Now, he is married to his wife Molly and has three daughters named Hannah, Hope, and Leah. Mr. Bassett came to Lincoln Lutheran through a call that he believes was the work of the Holy Spirit. Lincoln Lutheran needed a teacher when the high school began to expand and he fit the qualities desired, so he was the man to call. His favorite thing about teaching at Lincoln Lutheran is the kids, who he says are “the best”. His funniest memory is when a student named Charlie Gieseke hid in his closet during lunch and stayed there through class. About halfway through class, Charlie popped out and said, “I ought to be going now.” So he walked out as Mr. Bassett casually continued class without any reaction, despite the dumbfounded and surprised looks on the students’ faces!
