My name is Natalie and I am currently the Religious Educator at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis. I am working on my fifth year as a religious educator and sometimes feel like I am the Jack of all trades. I am married and
we used to home school (unschool) my soon to be teenage daughter, who is now entering back into the school system. We used to be a certified foster-care family, I was a Girl Scout leader, lead a home school theater troop, participated in Up With People, taught preschool, worked with youth in the arts, certified in Travel and Tourism, degrees in both Early Childhood Education as well as Human development, cook tester for Manifest Vegan’s new cookbook….whew, on a daily basis (like most adults I am sure) I have to remind myself to breathe.
I reflect often about my journey as a Unitarian Universalist Religious Educator as well as a UU parent and UU family. Being UU, you soon learn that your beliefs are your own and may not match up directly with other UU’s. However, that is the wonderful thing about it. Learning from each other…isn’t that what it is all about.
