Ms. Brandon

Natalie Brandon is very excited to be teaching first grade at Madison's Trust Elementary School this year! She worked with first grade last year as a special education teacher assistant.

Natalie received her Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Erskine College in South Carolina. She began her teaching career in 2005 and taught third grade for seven and a half years. After a break from teaching and a move to northern Virginia, she returned to the school setting in 2020 as a general education teacher assistant at MTE. Then, she moved to Kenya to work with kids at a children's home, providing help to the teachers and staff at the school on the site. Upon returning to the States, Natalie returned to MTE as a substitute and then worked with special education during the 2022-2023 school year. 

Natalie was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. She is a HUGE Clemson Tiger fan, especially football! She also loves to travel and experience new cultures and meet new people around the world, although East Africa will always hold a special place in her heart. In her spare time, she volunteers with her church, spends time with friends, and runs and exercises. She cannot wait to meet her students and families to begin this journey together!
