Welcome Sarah Kline to Austin!

Mrs. Kline will be the NEW K-2 FLS/FAS teacher. Please make her feel at home on our campus. She enjoys reading, going to concerts, scrap-booking, antique shopping and gardening. Many of you may remember Sarah, because she started her WISD career in Kid's Unite. We think she will be a great asset to our campus!
