Hello! My name is Corinne Pretiger. This is my third year teaching 1st grade. I graduated from Abilene Christian University in Texas with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2017, and with my Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning in 2018. I recently moved to North Carolina in 2020 after teaching in Georgia for two years. I already love living here! I am beyond excited to begin this new year with you at Olive Chapel Elementary!

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!

I have been at OCE for many years. I like elementary school because I love molding and shaping this age group through positive interactions. I am originally from Bladen County, NC. I love spending time with my family and playing with my grandson who also attends OCE. I love baking, dancing, photography and scrapbooking.
