Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Natasha Rubin
Hi, I am Natasha Rubin. This is my 16th year of teaching. I have my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology from Valparaiso University in Northwest Indiana and my graduate degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics from UNC Chapel Hill. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher and a North Carolina Certified Coach in Swimming.
I am originally from Miami, Florida. Most of my family still lives there. I have two nephews and 1 niece. They are my heartbeat! I try to visit them every chance I get. I am also a swim coach for the Vance Aquatics Barracudas at the Aycock Recreation Center. This swim team is for swimmers ages 3-18. I am also the Northern Vance High School Swim Coach and have been for 13 years.
I love teaching and watching students become strong independent learners that want to be excellent. The effort a child puts forth in trying to accomplish a task or understand how things connect makes me excited. We have three mottos this year: Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork; Excellence...Without Excuse; and All In. These are the driving forces in the classroom to make us successful as a unit.. We also following the SOARing expectations. S=show self-control, O=Offer peer support, A= Actively listen and learn, R=Respect Everyone. Feel free to come by and visit or volunteer to help us grow!
