• me in my classroom!

    Welcome! My name is Bennet Augustin and I have been teaching at McKelvey Elementary since 2019. I currently teach Kindergarten and First Grade art and assist with Second Grade as well. I previously taught art fundamentals and ceramics at Pattonville High School and elementary K-5 in the Rockwood School District. I am in my 5th year of teaching and am so excited to be able to instill artistic expression and imagination in my McKelvey students! 

    I graduated from Maryville University with a Bachelor's in fine arts and a Master's in education. My husband currently works in the Parkway School District as well as an elementary music educator. We have one dog, a poodle named Maple! In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and backpacking. We love to travel and go on adventures. I consider myself to be a nature lover- you can typically find me on a bike ride, in my canoe at Creve Coeur Lake, or just hanging out in a park! Of course, I also LOVE art! :)
