Welcome! I am excited to begin my 1st school year with the Kelly Edwards Elementary School Family. It is indeed a pleasure to introduce myself to the students and parents. I am Kaye Frances Austin and I am delighted to be an educator. I previously taught at Barnwell Primary School for 20 years. I am currently assigned to teach 2nd grade, where all subjects are taught by me except related arts.
My educational journey includes a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and I have a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from South Carolina State University, Orangeburg, South Carolina. I have taken many educational courses to prepare me to give your child a successful education.
I live in Barnwell South Carolina with my daughter Kaylin and my grandson, Logan. We are active in our church, Bethlehem Baptist Church in Barnwell. I am also engaged in many community activities. I love arts and crafts, traveling and shopping.
Second grade is a period of transitions and adjustments, preparing your child for the South Carolina State Tests and mastery in reading. My pledge to my students and parents is to make this an enjoyable experience. I absolutely love working in the elementary setting. My greatest wish is that my students enjoy learning.
I look forward to a great year with you!
