Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Austin

I am so excited to get to know you.  This is my 20th year teaching.  I started my career at Sunrise Elementary as a 5th grade teacher for 2 years.  I then moved to Grandview School District where I taught 5th grade for 7 years and Gifted for 4 years.  My next path brought me to Desoto where I was the gifted teacher for 5 years and am now on my second year as a 1st grade teacher.  I graduated from Central Methodist University in 2000 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  I received my Gifted Certification thru University of Missouri in Columbia.  I graduated from Hillsboro High School and currently live in Farmington.  I have been married for 22 years and have a 21 year old son that just graduated college and will be teaching Middle School Math at Farmington this year.  I also have 3 cats named Church, Muenster, and Bongo.
