  • All About Ms. Austin
    Welcome Oakridge Elementary Family!
    I am a native of Clover and attended school in this very district. I attended the University of South Carolina and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. Go Gamecocks! I also obtained my Masters degree in Literacy in 2014. I have two precious boys, Brayden, 6 and Camden, 3.  We also have a wild Westie named Max. When I am not spending time with my family I enjoy singing in the choir at church, enjoying starbucks white chocolate mochas, and visiting my favorite place, the beach! 
    This year will begin my 12th year in education. I have taught first and second grade but Pre-K is by far my favorite! My goal is to build a strong foundation through play and academics while also guiding your child through their first school experience. I aim to instill a love of learning in your child that will last for a lifetime!
    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all!
