• Meet Mrs. Finger

    Welcome to 3C!  My name is Heather Finger, and I am so excited to be your third grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year.  This will be my fourth year teaching at Austin Elementary.  Let’s make it the best year yet!

    I grew up in Allen, Texas and lived there my whole life.  I graduated from Allen High School in 2010, and then went on to college.    After college, I moved back to DFW and began teaching.  My mom and dad live in Allen still, and my younger sister lives in Abilene, Texas.  Last summer, I got married to my husband, Jake, and we just bought a house in Carrollton! 

    My Education

    I attended Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas.  In May of 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education.  I continued my education at ACU, and in May of 2015, I received a Masters of Education in Teaching and Learning.  I love teaching and couldn’t think of a better way to spend every day!
