Mr. Mercer

Hello!  I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Austin Mercer and I am so excited to be your child’s 5th grade teacher this year!

This will be my eighth year teaching and my third year at Pleasant Grove.  I am so happy to be a part of the Flyer family!  Before my time at Pleasant Grove, I taught 4th grade for five years at Bailey Elementary in Nash County.   I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from East Carolina University.  Outside of teaching I enjoy spending time with my wife (who teaches at Oberlin Magnet Middle School) and son, going to the beach with our dog, Pippa, and playing golf.

I am thrilled to be starting on this year’s journey with your children!  I look forward to watching them learn, grow and have a fantastic time in 5th grade
