Hello! My name is Natsumi Mitchell and I am very excited to teach 2nd grade again for the fourth year at Ascent Academy!
I am originally from Japan and I have lived in a few different places in the world. For the past 13 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 love teaching and enjoy the opportunity to instill the love of learning in every student and help them become life-long learners.
I’ve taught from pre-K to 3rd grade, but 2nd grade is my favorite!
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 and a passionate baker!
I look forward to another amazing year of learning and adventures. Welcome to 2nd grade!
