Teacher Tuesday Spotlight: Mrs. Natalie Cromer.
This evening’s interview was conducted by the US Digital Media Team (Mason Crowder, Brody Williams, Alex Kreger, JT Eberhart).
HA US DM: What do you love about teaching at HA?
Mrs. Cromer: There are so many reasons I love teaching at HA! The top of the list would be, obviously, the students. I love that our students value education. I love that my students can make me laugh. I love that my students come to school wanting to know more. I also love that my students not only are willing to listen and learn, but they love to question and share their own ideas and experiences. Teaching at HA inspires me to learn more every day!
HA US DM: Why did you choose to teacher History?
Mrs. Cromer: I love teaching all subject areas, but History has a special place in my heart. I was first inspired by my dad and his love for history. My high school World History teacher inspired me to have an even deeper love for history because of his passion and enthusiasm as he taught. I think because I saw how much he loved History, that made me grow to have that same passion. It is my hope that I can inspire my own students to enjoy learning about people and places all over the world and the benefit that comes with that knowledge to make our world a better place today.
HA US DM: What was your favorite part about your Egypt trip?
Mrs. Cromer: Last year I had the opportunity to go on an educational tour to Egypt. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Each day I was just as amazed and in awe as the day before as I experienced climbing inside the Great Pyramid of Khufu, admiring hieroglyphics and drawings inside King Tut’s and Ramses’ VI tomb, sailing down the Nile River, and visiting the massive Abu Simbel temples, to name a few. However, I think of all the exciting things I got to see, experience, and learn about, my absolute favorite and coolest thing would have to be riding across the Sahara Desert on a camel!
Thank you, Mrs. Cromer, for all you do for our HA community!
