Hi!  My name is Mrs. Beech. I am married and have two daughters.  I grew up in Wake County. One cool fact about my family is that my oldest daughter was in the first kindergarten class here at OCE.  I joined the staff in 2000.  Even though I have taught first grade for a number of years, I still get excited
about coming to school every day! I know the students will teach me something new each day, and I will teach them new things as well. I love the beach and the mountains! I also love to travel! I look forward to a great year at OCE!!

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!
