Mrs. Natalia Beardslee
Greetings and Welcome to the 4th Grade!
I am so honored to be a part of the Cardinal Ridge Elementary School team. Go Redwings!
I am a career switcher and on my third career. I recently graduated from Shenandoah University with a Masters degree in Elementary Education; this will be my second year teaching. Prior to my career in education, I spent 12 years working as a human resources professional and five years working as an environmental scientist. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Geology from Bucknell University & an MBA from American University.
As a life long learner, I strive to inspire that same passion for learning in my students. My teaching philosophy is based on a whole child approach that leverages student interests, needs, curiosities, strengths and backgrounds. My goal is to to further the academic, social and cultural development of ALL students. I can't wait to get to know my students and their families; together we are going to make an amazing team!
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children (1 daughter at Lunsford MS and a son and daughter at Liberty ES). I also love to cook, spend time with family and friends, read, restore furniture and travel to new places.
