My name is Natalie Maghsoodi and this is my first year teaching! I am so excited to be a part of the first grade team at Tye River Elementary School. I find myself learning from my students and growing as a teacher each and every day.
I grew up in Roanoke, Virginia but moved to Harrisonburg, Virginia when I decided I wanted to attend James Madison University to pursue my dream job of being a teacher. I began school in 2011, graduated with my bachelor's degree in 2015 and then my Master of Arts in Teaching degree in 2016.
Teaching and having an impact on students is something that I have always wanted to do. I knew that from a young age I wanted to teach children and be a role model for kids of all different backgrounds.
