This marks my 18th year teaching and my fifth year at OCE. I have taught 2nd grade as well, but 1st grade holds a special place in my heart! I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and moved to Florida when I was in 1st grade.  I attended the University of Florida where I earned a masters degree in education and I am also National Board Certified. I taught for 13 years in Florida before moving to North Carolina.
 
I now live in Holly Springs with my husband and 2 boys. My son Tyler will be in 4th grade at Olive Chapel and Logan will be in 2nd grade.  I enjoy the wide variety of family events in the area.  I also enjoy crafting and trying Pinterest projects in my spare time.

My name is Elaine Austin. I grew up in Cary and attended Wake county schools myself. After graduating from Apex High school, I set off to college at UNCW in Wilmington. It was there that I met my husband Lyman. We have been married for 33 years and have two amazing sons. Our oldest son, Trent lives in Charleston S.C. with his wife Katie. Ben, the youngest, also lives in Charleston, S.C. They are both wildlife biologists for the state of South Carolina.

I have been a Teacher Assistant in Wake County for over 20 years. Dillard Drive Elementary was the first school I worked at. While at Dillard, I worked with all grade levels, two years as the library assistant, helped with creating displays/props for school productions and was Teacher Assistant of the year. Then I took a job at Olive Chapel to be on a year-round schedule. This is my third year at Olive Chapel in first grade, which is my favorite. The teachers I work with are amazing! I love helping children to achieve their best, share experiences with them, and inspire them not only academically but personally!

Personally, I enjoy art, cooking, dancing, the outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends!
