Hello! My name is Natsumi Mitchell and I am very excited to teach 2nd grade again for the third year at Ascent Academy!
I am originally from Japan and I have lived in a few different places in the world. For the past 12 years, I have been fortunate to have taught a diverse group of students in Oklahoma, Tokyo, Paris, and Utah.
I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a degree in Early Childhood Education and received a master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from the same university. I am a passionate teacher and enjoy the opportunity to instill the love of learning in every student and help them become life-long learners. We always have fun in my classroom!
I’ve taught from pre-K to 3rd grade, but 2nd grade is my favorite! It’s such a rewarding grade where students are independent but still have that youthful innocence and passion to learn. I love teaching 2nd grade!!
Outside the classroom, I love outdoor adventures such as camping, snowboarding, snorkeling, and hiking with my family and friends. I’m also a big fan of Zumba!
I look forward to helping your child on their lifetime of learning! Welcome to 2nd grade!
