Welcome to Ms. Falk's Website!
I am so excited for another wonderful year at Austin! I am really looking forward to a successful and productive year with your children. I absolutely love teaching and can’t wait to create an engaging and nurturing environment in the classroom.
This is my 8th year teaching at Austin and I am so excited to be back in first grade. Before I was at Austin, I was a Kindergarten Teaching Assistant for two years. I am originally from Tampa, Florida and I moved to Atlanta in the summer of 2008. I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008 with a B.A. in Spanish and Speech Communications. GO DAWGS! I also obtained my Masters in the Arts of Teaching in Elementary Education from Mercer University. I could not be happier to be teaching first grade at Austin!
I am more than happy to set up a time to conference if you have any comments, questions, or concerns. Please feel free to email me or leave a message with the front desk. I know we are going to have a wonderful school year!
