Hello, my name is Ms. Ariel Austin, and I am the new music teacher at LTES. This is my first year as a teacher as well as working with RCPS and LTES. I graduated from Radford University in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science with a concentration in Music. I am from Roanoke and although this is my first-year teaching in RCPS I went to RCPS from elementary to high school. I am very excited to be teaching in the school district I was a part of as a kid. I am a flutist and began playing flute at James Breckinridge when I was in the 6th grade, I continued to play at William Fleming and Radford University. Music has always been a big deal in my family and once I began to play an instrument, I developed a passion not only for music but for being musician. Here at Lincoln Terrace, I plan to create an environment where my students can create and express themselves through music. I also plan to share my love for music with my students in hopes that they too will learn to love music.
