Lower Elementary Montessori Teacher

My Bio


My name is Natassia DeWyke and I am thrilled to embark on my seventh year at San Tan as a Montessori Lower Elementary 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. 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.

I have had the privilege to be part of San Tan’s Montessori Elementary program for the past eight years, starting from just one classroom and growing to six! During this time I have also served as the Montessori team lead, Academic Content Specialist, and a member of the Marigold Committee. Montessori is not only a passion for me as an educator, but as a mother as well. I am fortunate to watch my own children experience the gift of this beautiful method alongside me and with the support of my incredible husband.

When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family (including my Frenchie, Ricky Ricardo), practicing yoga, brunching, photography, baking, traveling, hand lettering, touring local coffee shops, and embroidery/cross stitch/quilting!
