Episode #87: Natalie Valencia

Dana GoodierOut of the Trenches Podcast

Nathalie Valencia was born in Bogota Colombia. At age 16, she migrated with her Mother to the US. She is currently a program Coordinator for the Coach and Mentoring Program at Denver Public Schools. Her journey working in education started when she was just 17 years old, when she started working as a Spanish and Statistics tutor, Library clerk and research assistant while attending college full time. Upon graduation, she worked as a Student Affairs Officer at the Center for Women & Men at the University of California in Los Angeles. After moving to Colorado, she was accepted to be a Denver Teaching Fellow for Denver Public Schools and received her teaching licensure in Special Education. She also pursued a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Northern Colorado and a Project Management Certification Program from Cornell University. Her passion for education was ignited through the realization that it was thanks to education that she was able to forge a better quality of life and understood that many others could do the same; they just needed to know how.
