My Bio

My name is Natassia DeWyke and I am thrilled to embark on my sixth year at San Tan as a Montessori Lower Elementary (1-3) Lead Guide!

Growing up an Air Force brat, I had the opportunity to travel the world and experience great culture, food, and art. This inspired my passion for photography, which led me to The University of Arizona where I attained my BFA in Photography in 2007. Go Wildcats! An itch in my heart guided me toward Montessori in 2014, which in turn led me to the Khalsa Montessori Teacher Education Program where I earned my Montessori Early Childhood Education and Elementary I certifications from the American Montessori Society.

My incredible husband and I are the proud parents of an amazing little lady who attends San Tan Montessori. Fulfilling my passion as a Montessori educator and witnessing my own child blossom in Montessori has been a joyful experience. It confirms that Montessori was the right direction for my family and me! In addition to our daughter, our family also includes our French bulldog, Ricky Ricardo. When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, practicing yoga, visiting plant nurseries, brunching, photography, baking, traveling, hand lettering, and embroidery/cross-stitch/quilting!
