My name is Austin Collins and I am a Social Studies teacher and football coach at South Aiken High School. I am excited to be teaching 5 Sections of U.S. History this school year! The 2019-2020 school year will be my 10th teaching at my alma mater, which I graduated from in 2004. I have taught World History, U.S. History, Geography, and Psychology over the years and have also served as a football and basketball assistant coach for the Thoroughbreds. My wife of 10 years, Brittaney, is also a South Aiken graduate and is employed as an RN in Augusta, Georgia. Britt and I have a 2 year old daughter named Clarke! We also have two rescue dogs, General (5) and Admiral (Addy, 4) Outside of work, I enjoy following the athletics programs of the University of Tennessee Volunteers.
I am looking forward to a great 2019-2020 school year and football season! Go T-Breds!
