2nd Grade Teacher
Hello, my name is Natalie Etcheverry and I am one of the second-grade teachers at Peninsula. I enjoy helping students reach their potential and love to watch them grow and thrive. I have a passion for writing and science and enjoy incorporating STEAM lessons into my teaching. Some of my hobbies outside of school include gardening, hiking, and camping.

Favorite school memory as a student:
I had a really great art teacher in high school named Ms. Syroboyarsky who did a great job inspiring us through cooperative projects. She lent me supplies for projects I was excited about and created a classroom that was really focused on growth mindset. My best memories as a student circled around her classroom because she made me feel like I could do anything as an artist and a student.
My “why” for being in public education:
I love creating a space for students to be themselves, be curious, and feel like they are a part of community.
What I do to unwind and recharge:
My favorite thing to do to unwind and recharge is spending time in nature. Gardening and hiking are some favorites!
