She worked with infants in a Montessori setting before moving on to Communities in Schools, an AmeriCorps program that helped to bridge the relationship between public schools and families. Motivated by the educational movement in New Orleans, Natalie joined the Harriet Tubman staff in 2012, helping to pilot the K-1-2 program. In 2016, she moved up to 3rd grade with her students to continue their education in mathematics. Natalie now serves as the Red Team Leader and teaches math to 3rd and 4th grade scholars. In 2016-2017, her students outperformed the district with 55% of Natalie's students scoring Basic and 27% scoring Mastery on the 3rd grade LEAP test.
