About the Urban Educator

Hello Education World and Beyond!

My name is Natalie and I live in the wonderful city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  I grew up in Oriskany, NY, a very tiny town.  In 7th grade, I moved to Nazareth, PA.  I attended West Chester University (WCU) in 2004 for Special & Elementary Education.  I graduated in 2008 with honors and went to work for the Philadelphia School District.  I was awarded a Graduate Assistant position at WCU in the Fall of 2009 so I went back for 2 more years and received my Masters in Elementary & Secondary Counseling. I’ve worked as a special education teacher (5th & 8th grade) and a school counselor for a K-8 school.

I currently work in a Charter School in Philadelphia as School Counselor for grades 5-8.  I absolutely love the people I work with and have had an amazing opportunity to make some of my dreams come true!

I live with my husband, Todd, (a musician and music engineer) in our beautiful South Philadelphia Row Home!

In this blog you will find my ideas for everything educational.  Please message me if you have any questions or comments.  Thanks for reading!!
