In her 16 years as an educator, Natalie Zanzucchi-Washington has been privileged to work with students and teachers in a variety of settings. She has worked as a classroom teacher, reading interventionist, instructional specialist and International Baccalaureate programme coordinator. Last year, Natalie joined HTHM as a 12th grade English teacher and also served as Interim Dean of Students. Her goal is to create spaces where all students belong, are valued and have the opportunity for growth. Natalie is also the mom of three young children, two of whom will be joining the HTH family this year. In her free time, you can find Natalie and her husband, Brandon, cheering on their kids from the sidelines at a youth sporting event. She looks forward to cultivating a culture of collaboration at HTHM and serving students, families and community members as the Dean of Students this year.
