Natasha was born and raised in Durham, NC. Natasha volunteered part-time in Early Childcare when she was just 14. While still in high-school, Natasha earned her NC Early Childhood Credentials. One of Natasha’s main goals for her students is to learn that we are all family. Children, teachers, and families working together to make everyone feel accepted and comfortable is a top priority for her. She has 12 years of experience working with children from infant to 6 years of age and is in the home stretch of finishing her AAS in Early Childhood Education. Natasha and her wife, Kristy share the mothering and joy of raising their daughter, Kaitlyn, and 2 year old (Yorkie-poo) Brandy. Natasha has a couple of hobbies that she enjoys wildly, such as couponing (such an addiction!), baking, cooking, spending time with her family and friends, being a “classroom parent” at her daughter’s school, and listening to country music! Tasha joined TLS in 2013.
