Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and welcome to my teacher page!
My name is Natalie Youngs. I have had the opportunity to work in Mooresville Intermediate School, a school that has the honor of being nationally recognized for integrating technology into classroom instruction. When given the opportunity to join the Dixon Elementary School family, I could hard wait to move down here from Mooresville and become a part of this vibrant school community. I am excited to continue working as part of the Dixon education team, and I cannot wait to help my students become more confident in math and in their leadership!
My Background . . .
Before I started teaching, I pursued a degree in Electrical Engineering at UNC Charlotte. After three years of study I discovered I had more joy teaching my classmates than I did building machines! I followed my new love to a teaching opportunity at Excella School in Kigali, Rwanada. I taught math and science to local students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. This fostered a passion for teaching that is still going strong today. I seek to bring my international experience into the classroom and help inspire students to look how they can make an impact in the world at large. I set high expectations for my students.
My Experience . . .
I have three years of classroom experience. I have experience teaching all subjects and integrating technology into instruction from Mooresville Intermediate School. I also have experience teaching math and science abroad in Rwanda to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. I am very excited to catch the wave with the rest of my students! I am currently teaching 2nd grade.
My Education . . .
I am a highly qualified elementary school teacher. I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a B.A. in Elementary Education and a concentration in Mathematics.
