Natasha has mentored a small group of local high school students and supported them through the college application process. This is not part of her load, but her way of volunteering and giving back to the community. She also maintains relationships with graduates of our program in schools across the country and shares resources and facilitates discussion of a shared reading (often the Curry Big Read). Again, this is outreach and support that she chooses to engage in that goes above and beyond her "job description". She cares deeply about local students and teachers and engages in volunteer work that supports the community.
