All About Me

                                      All About Mrs. Astin.....

Hi  there

My name is Holly Astin and I am so honored to be a 1st grade teacher here at Highland! I am even more thrilled to be your child's teacher! I cannot wait to get to know your child as we learn and grow together, but first, let me tell you a little about myself.

I was born in Gadsden, Alabama and have lived here most of my life. After high school, I moved to Auburn to attend Auburn University. I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in the Spring of 2013. In 2018, I graduated from UAH with a master's degree in Special Education concentrating in Autism Spectrum Disorder. It has always been a dream of mine to be a teacher. 
I believe that working with children is one of the greatest jobs in the whole world. I especially love elementary students. 

My husband Carter and I were married in March of 2015 and welcomed our baby boy in August of last year! We love traveling back to Auburn for football games or just to enjoy time with friends. Here are some quick fun facts about me.

*I have a chicken coop in my backyard
*My birthday is March 7th 
*Spring is my favorite season
*I LOVE Chick-Fil-A
*I do not like bugs
*My favorite colors are Blue and Gray
*I love visiting the beach
*I have been on 3 foreign mission trips and loved every minute of them.
*My favorite hobby is gardening
*I enjoy weekends at the lake
*First graders are my favorite!

I have been blessed to teach Kindergarten and 2nd grade, and I am so excited for my 4th year in 1st grade! Thanks so much for trusting me with your little ones! I know this year will be great and I can't wait to get to know each of them.
