Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Austin

I'm so happy to be your first grade teacher!  I've taught 5th grade, 4th grade, 3rd grade and of course my favorite.....1st grade. I have been teaching for 20 years and still love watching my students learn so many new things.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 23 years.  He teaches at Forest and also coaches football. Go Cats!! My son, Josh, is a senior at Forest.  My other son, Chris,  is in college up in Ohio studying business management.  It's crazy to think they were once first graders!! I also have a dog named Tank and our class guinea pig named Snickers. 

When I'm not teaching, I am enjoying my favorite shows, reading a great book, or enjoying outside by going for a run. I love to get away in the mountains or at the beach.  Anywhere can be an adventure!!
