About Ms. Natalie

Hello! I'm Ms. Natalie. I am so excited to work with you and your child this year! I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us! I thought you might like to know a little bit about me.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Alex. We raise 4 children: Scott who is in 10th grade, Miriam who is in 7th grade, Christian who is in 4th grade, and Julian who is in 2nd grade. They certainly take up most of my free time! As a family we enjoy recreating outside - hiking, skiing, biking, swimming, golfing, and playing many sports. We also have some talented musicians in the house, but unfortunately I am not one of them. We have 2 friendly Goldendoodles who love to play too!

I have lived in Littleton for most of my life. My parents and my three brothers all live in Colorado and we get together a lot! I graduated from Columbine High School. I attended Colorado State University (GO RAMS) and received a B.S. in Health and Exercise Science. Later, I received an M.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.

This will be my second year teaching Upper Elementary at Montessori Peaks Academy. It is my desire to nurture curiosity in all my students. I am so excited to be partnered with Ms. Tasha this year.

About Ms. Tasha

Natasha “Tasha” Brown began as an assistant teacher at MPA in 2014. Before joining the MPA faculty, she devoted several years and countless hours volunteering for the school’s PTA.

Brown is a USA Today best-selling author of more than a dozen books in a wide range of genres.

“There is nothing better than observing children in their discovery of what the world has to offer, what they can contribute to their community, and learning about the subjects they find exciting. I strive to push them to become kind, curious and responsible human beings. Sharing a joke or two along the way is just icing on the cake.

“When I'm not surrounded by children at school, I am busy designing book covers for the publishing industry and writing my own novels. I love creating new worlds and painting pictures with my words. There always seems to be more characters waiting for their stories to be told.”
