Hello Gordon Families! I am thrilled to be joining the Patriot team as the new Principal. I am very excited to be working with such a dedicated and hardworking staff to make sure every student is engaged and challenged daily.

After graduating from Longwood University, my educational career began in Henrico County where I served as a second, third and fourth grade teacher for six years. During this time I earned my M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University. Next I moved into the role of Resource Teacher for two years before relocating with my family for a brief stint in Northern VA working as a third grade teacher for Alexandria City. Fortunately, we were brought back to Richmond and I returned to Henrico County as an Associate Principal for three years. Most recently I served as the Assistant Principal at Winterpock Elementary in Chesterfield.

I grew up in Midlothian, graduating from Clover Hill! My husband Matt, my 5 year old daughter Madison and my soon-to-be 3 year old son Jackson and I moved back to the Midlothian area last year. As a family we love being outside, going to the beach, reading books and just enjoying time together.

I am looking forward to working with each of you to ensure all of our students are academically, emotionally, and socially supported and encouraged.

Please feel free to email me at natalie_bareat symbolccspnet.net or call me at (804) 378.2410 if I can help with anything.
