Mrs. Natalia Beardslee
Greetings and Welcome to 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 graduated from Shenandoah University with a Masters degree in Elementary Education; this will be my 5th year teaching. Prior to my career in education, I worked 12 years as a human resources professional and five years 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 every scholar. I can't wait to get to know our scholars and families; together we are going to make an amazing team!
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, three children (1 daughter at Freedom HS, 1 son at Lunsford MS and a daughter at Liberty ES) and our beagle, Alice. I also love to cook, read, spend time with family and friends, draw, restore furniture and travel to new places.
