• Hey guys, my name is Austin Avery and I am a special educator for life skills. I have worked in the education field since 1996. My experience in education includes working in a variety of settings: resource, severe behavior unit, inclusion, transition and life skills. My educational background started with a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education. I left teaching for several years to pursue other interests. I was very successful in the corporate world! However, I missed the kiddos too much and stepped back into the classroom. I am grateful to work with students of all walks of life and strive to help all students work toward their independence.
