Natalie Krayenvenger – Her in life is all things education! She is currently a 4th-grade teacher and has been a “sherpa of learning” since, well, as far back as she can remember, but according to her diploma, a “real” teacher since 2011.

Reading, writing, social studies, math, and social/emotional development are what makes her jump out of bed in the morning and what she is still thinking about at night as her head hits the pillow like a 50 lb weight.

She hopes that through her blog she can share her experiences with others (both the positive and the not-so-positive), help herself to reflect and improve as an educator, discuss topics of interest (or concern), and celebrate the miraculous events in life known as teaching and learning!


When not in the classroom, Natalie can be found reading, cooking, coaching, running, knitting, tweeting, or having fun with her bearded and handy husband and their wiggly and uber friendly bulldog, Copper.Connect with Natalie Krayenvenger:
