Sue Basile received her associate's degree from Pasadena City College and then pursued a degree in fine art photography from Cal State Long Beach. She has experience teaching history, photography and art classes for the last 15 years; and teaching at Biola Youth Academics since 2008. Sue admits to being a history nut as she watches programs and reads books as often as possible to share new exciting facts with her class. She enjoys being able to tap into her knowledge and experience of art history and art technique to help students both appreciate art and have success with the various mediums used. Photography has always been a love of hers and loves engaging with her students and getting to know them in hopes of inspiring them to love the subject as much as she does. That interaction keeps Sue coming back year after year.
