Natalie LoBianco

Hello! My name is Natalie LoBianco. I am a pre-service teacher at the University of Northern Iowa, majoring in elementary education. I am from Dubuque, Iowa, where I live with my mom, dad, and twin sister, Maria. On campus, I am involved in Women's Chorus, Dance Marathon, and Kappa Delta Pi Educational Honor Society. At home, I work as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium and perform with Rising Star Theatre Company. Some of my other hobbies include tennis, photography, cheering on the Green Bay Packers, traveling to see musical productions, and spending time with friends and family. I am a strong advocate of inclusivity in the classroom, and am a certified “Strategies for Success” participant for English Language Learners, Green Zone ally for members of the military, and Safe Zone ally for members of the LGBTQ community. After graduation, I hope to teach in a middle elementary grade level classroom in the Midwest, preferably close to home!

My perspective has changed, ...
