Coming from a family full of educators, it wasn't difficult to find what I was born to do. My parents are Benet and Susan Augustine, and I'm the oldest of three girls. I was raised in Fenton and graduated from Lacassine High School in 2008. Having wonderful elementary teachers in my life inspired me to take the same path. I attended McNeese State University and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor Science degree in Elementary Education. I completed my student teaching at Henry Heights Elementary in fourth grade ELA. I began my career in the middle of 2013 teaching 2nd grade at Welsh Elementary. My experiences with my first class are unforgettable. It is my hope that each child in my class will succeed in reaching their goals. I truly love teaching second grade and can't wait to help my students fall in love with learning. My hobbies include reading, going to the theater, and spending time with my family and friends. I'm looking forward to an amazing year!
