Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Natalie Salas. I am excited to be teaching 5th Grade Reading, Writing, and Social Studies at Lindsey Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year. Prior to teaching 5th Grade, I have also taught 2nd Grade (clinical practice) in Plano ISD and Pre-Kindergarten in Denton and Lake Highlands. I have also previously taught Stretch-N-Grow classes at several Preschools and was a P.E. Coach for middle school at a Dallas Charter School. Whether it has been tutoring, teaching, or organizing children's book clubs- I have always had a passion for education and the classroom.
I am also apart of The Sunshine Committee, Multicultural Committee, and a co-sponsor for The Student Lighthouse team here at Lindsey. I received my undergraduate degree from The University of North Texas in Denton, Tx! I come from a long line of educators, including my dear mom who taught elementary for many deacdes up until recent retirement, along with my sweet grandfathers who were both professors at Texas A&M University.
I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and an overly-active blue heeler puppy, Arthur. When I am not teaching...you can usually find me visiting our 4 nephews and nieces, baking, planning our next traveling destination, or enjoying anything outdoors!
I look forward to an exciting school year! Go Lone Stars!!
