Mrs. Brenda Austin
I am excited to be at Highland Elementary! I have worked in elementary education since 2006. I have worked as a paraprofessional, a substitute teacher, and a student teacher. After earning my Masters in Elementary Education, I taught 5th grade at a charter school in Fort Collins as well as the Brighton School District. The last 3 years I have worked as a Home Instruction teacher, working with students who could not be in the classroom for medical or behavior reasons.
I earned my AA from Front Range Community College, my BS in Human Development and Family Studies from Colorado State University (GO Rams) and my Masters from Regis University. I have a husband and 3 grown kids; a daughter and 2 sons as well as 2 grandkids with another on the way. I enjoy walking in 5k run/walks, painting with acrylic paint, and sitting by the fire pit.
