Natalia Heckman calls Goose Creek ISD her home and her alma mater – that was where she started her career in education. Trained in Russia as a technical writer and a translator, Natalia never thought about becoming a teacher, but after her first year in a classroom, she knew that teaching was her calling and her mission. Natalia has taught English and ESOL classes, assisted teachers as an ELA and Social Studies Instructional Coach, and served as an ESL/Bilingual program specialist for GCCISD.
She currently pursues her passion for linguistics and education as an educational consultant with Seidlitz Education. Natalia holds a bachelor’s degree in literature from the University of Houston at Clear Lake and a master’s degree in school administration from Lamar University.
