Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Natasha Rubin

Hi, I am Natasha Rubin.  I started teaching in Vance County in 2001. I have my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology from Valparaiso University and my graduate degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics from UNC Chapel Hill. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Middle Childhood Generalist and a USA Swimming Certified Coach.

I am originally from Miami, Florida. Most of my family still lives there. I have two nephews and one 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. This swim team is for swimmers ages 3-18.

I have the incredible opportunity here at Aycock to blend my experience in the classroom teaching with my experience of coaching at the pool.  At Aycock, I am an MCL, Multi-Classroom Leader, which means I get to work with students and teachers. I have the opportunity to lead and coach teachers in mathematics and work with students on strategies to help strengthen their understanding of mathematics.  I love watching teachers gain confidence in themselves and see it trickle down to their students. Empowering teachers and students to become strong independent learners that put forth their best at all times is my goal.
