Teacher of the Year

Natasha Belle

I am currently a math teacher at Memorial Middle School and have been employed with the Rockdale County Public School System for thirteen years. Three of those years, I served as the Middle Grades District Math Coach.  

 

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Georgia State University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Mercer University.

 

I LOVE teaching students. It's my calling.  As a result, I'm passionate about helping students succeed, in general, but especially mathematically.  I believe understanding mathematics help students to unlock the world around them.  Therefore, I use manipulatives, incorporate engaging activities, and make learning fun to help keep students motivated to learn and explore.   

 

Lastly, I believe that building trusting relationships with students is an integral part of helping them to become successful pupils who are willing to take risk, persevere, ask questions, and make mistakes. That's why as an educator, I am encouraging, motivating, respectful, and approachable in order to foster an environment conducive to learning.


When I'm not about the business of educating impressionable young minds, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, and being adventurous (skydiving, white water rafting, ziplining etc.).

 

I am truly elated to be Memorial Middle School's 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year, and I look forward to representing Memorial Middle School well during the upcoming new school year.
