Hello! I am Mrs. Natalie Maldonado, ELD teacher. I am excited to be a part of the BEST Academy team. I have a true love for education. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish. I also hold a Multiple Subject Credential with a bilingual authorization. I recently graduated with a Master’s degree in Education with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction. My teaching philosophy is student-centered, as I believe in providing students with many engaging and interactive lessons in all subject areas. My goal is to use a variety of teaching strategies that will tend to all learning styles throughout the year.
