Degrees and Certifications:
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
