Natalie Nikitas, The Captain at Nashville Academy of Computer Science

Meet Natalie Nikitas, The Captain at Nashville Academy of Computer Science.

"I’m passionate about seeing students connect the dots and really start to gain a true understanding of content. However, my goal when I teach is not just to make sure they understand content; I also want them to understand how the things they are learning in my class are relevant to their everyday lives. When I was a student, I always wondered if my teachers truly cared about me - and if they were trying to make me a better person. I don’t want my students to ever ask this question. I want them to remember that I worked with them to uncover life lessons, not just content lessons.  As they grow, I want my students to take ownership and responsibility of their own lives - and never stop seeking knowledge."
