Hi, I’m Natalie!

I’m the creator of Desk Secrets!

Growing up I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My stuffed animals were my students and they knew how to read before I was 10 years old. However, I never imagined myself becoming a kindergarten teacher. I student taught in 3rd grade and subbed 1st through 3rd (and for a few select kindergarten teachers).

However, I landed my first job in KINDERGARTEN!

I NEVER looked back. I became passionate about teaching kindergarten and I have been a kindergarten and first grade teacher for 20 years. I love to make new resources, create my own songs and use puppets to teach the young ones!

I am married to my husband, Mark, who used to teach high school Chemistry and Physics. Imagine our dinner conversations. I watched them begin their educational journey and my husband watched them graduate.

My other passions include learning more about God through reading the Bible, playing the piano along with writing songs and loving our Golden Retriever named Jellybean. I also love to create resources so that teachers like YOU can head out into the classroom and engage YOUR kids using new learning activities.
