All About Me

                                      All About Mrs. Astin.....

Hi  there! 

My name is Holly Astin (previously Holly Johnson) and I am so honored to be on the 1st grade team 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 went Auburn University to pursue a degree in Education. In the summer of 2013 I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  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 last year and are enjoying being married! 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 two brothers
*I love to travel! 
*Kenya is my favorite place in the whole world
*I love animals
* I own 5 laying hens
*My favorite colors are Blue and Gray
*My favorite food changes a lot but I tend to always love chicken.
*I have been on 3 foreign mission trips and loved every minute of them.
*I LOVE the beach!
*My favorite song is "Come Thou Fount"
* My favorite hobby is gardening 

I have been blessed to teach Kindergarten and 2nd grade, and I am so excited to see what fun 1st grade holds for us! Thanks so much for trusting me with your little ones! I know this year will be great and I cant wait to get to know each of them.
