I am Natalie, and am so excited to be a part of the Ashlar team! I grew up in theNapa Valley and Gig Harbor area. My love for Nature began early and made its way into mycareer! I have been teaching and learning in nature-based, Reggio Emilia philosophy for the last several years. I am passionate about whole-child, natural, individual and child led learning with a focus on inclusion.
When I’m not in the classroom, I’m in a forest, at a beach, or working on a craft! In addition, I am completing my BA in Early Childhood Education and Dual Language at The Evergreen State College! I am excited to learn and grow alongside your young scholars!
