About Me

Hey, I'm Miss Natalie.

I'm a former elementary school teacher creating content to empower families, educate children, and support teachers.

I was an elementary school teacher for 10 years, with the bulk of my career spent in North Carolina. There I taught fifth grade, first grade, and kindergarten. I also taught first grade at an international school in Hanoi, Vietnam, for two years.

I've worked at schools that implemented the Leader in Me program and IB Primary Years Programme.

I resigned from teaching at the end of the 2021-22 school year. Now I produce content for Primary Focus full time.

I am a proud graduate of California State University, Northridge where I was a part of the Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP). In 2020 I earned my Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University. I was a Teach For America '12 corps member.
