Second Grade Teacher
Compass Elementary

Hi! My name is Brea Austin and I am going to be your child’s second grade teacher. This will be my 13th year teaching. I taught first grade in North Kansas City for 8 years and this is my 5th year teaching second grade in Platte County. I am thrilled to be your child's teacher! It’s going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and new discoveries. In 2006, I graduated from the University of Central Missouri State with a degree in Elementary Education. And in 2012, I graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in English Language Learners.

Our Classroom

Our classroom environment is structured by a variety of hands-on learning activities in a workshop style classroom. We will set many goals throughout the school year and work as a team to accomplish those goals (students, teachers, & parents). The second grade team will work together to provide the best instructional practices to meet the learning needs of all of our students.


I believe communication is an essential element to a successful school year. A weekly newsletter will go home every Friday explaining, in detail, current happenings in the classroom, important dates to know, and other odds and ends of information. Please feel free communicate with me via email, calling the school, or drop a little note in your child’s daily folder. I welcome your thoughts and am looking forward to working with you to make second grade a successful year.
