All about Ms. Austin
View this Note
Welcome to our classroom website! My name is Erin K. Austin and I am pleased to be your child's first grade teacher this year. I attended St. Joseph's College where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Child Study, with a minor in English in 2006. I went on to receive my Master's Degree in Education from C.W. Post in Literacy. I am very proud to say that I graduated with a 4.0 gpa! I have held many positions while being an educator in the Bethpage School District for the last eight years. For two years I was Mrs. Lonergan and Ms. Dittrich's teacher assistant, I taught third grade for one year, and I have taught first grade ever since. I LOVE teaching first grade!!  I have also taught academic intervention services for the district (ELA, Mathematics, and Science) as well as Special Education Summer School and most recently Science Discoveries with the BOCES program. I also enjoy facilitating 21st Century workshops as well; when your child reaches fourth grade he or she can participate in many of the special activities. In addition, I volunteer my time as the PTA teacher representative.   I love to paint, travel, and spend time with my seven nieces and nephews when I am not in school.  I live in Babylon near the water so I love the beach and enjoying time in my blue kayak. I am very proud to work in BETHPAGE and can't wait to see you around CBS!
