Miss Natalino – District 54 Staff Spotlight
Churchill’s very own Miss Natalino was showcased at the School District 54 Staff Spotlight on Facebook today!
The Facebook post read:
From an enthusiastic, welcoming greeting in the morning to a high-five Cheetah Paw at the end of the day, Churchill Elementary School third-grade teacher Nicolette Natalino loves being a champion for her students and rolling out the red carpet for them – literally! She and her third grade teammates kicked off the school year with a peak moment by spreading out a red carpet to welcome students and hanging up a movie star background proclaiming them the “stars of third grade.” Natalino, who attended Nerge Elementary School and Margaret Mead Junior High, said she always knew she wanted to be a District 54 teacher, and helping a student figure out how a clock worked for the first time as a student teacher validated her calling. “Every time I see that light-bulb moment is as rewarding as the first time,” she said. Natalino also loves celebrating successes with students she works with in the Targeted Assistance Program, which focuses on getting students to grade in writing. #Peopleof54
