Ms. Kristin Austin

I am so excited to be a part of the Baton Bear community! I grew up in Caldwell County and actually attended Baton as a child. I loved the school then and still do! I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching in Caldwell County for the past 7 years. I taught 8th grade English at Gamewell Middle School. Before that I taught 2nd grade in Charlotte. I graduated with my Master's in Reading Education from Appalachian State University in 2015.

I have two boys of my own, Grayson (8) and Eli (7). They are amazing and keep me pretty busy! When we are not too busy with life's demands, our favorite place to be is at the Outer Banks fishing and enjoying our State's natural beauty!

I look forward to meeting you and learning more about you over the next year!
