Hello Panther families! My name is Natalie Guetarni, and I am the 8th grade counselor at Riverwatch Middle School. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing family and look forward to all the amazing adventures yet to come. I have currently been in education for 22 years bringing with me experience in teaching and counseling. When I am not working, I love spending time with my husband, Rob, my children, Gabbi (12) and Kaden (10), and my dogs, Bruno and Bailey. As a family, we love to take outdoor trips and have movie nights! Please know that I am available if you ever need me, and I look forward to meeting and building a relationship with you all.
I am so excited for my 2nd year here at RMS! While I’m not a native of Georgia, I am a high school graduate from Forsyth County Schools, and I have a BFA from Kennesaw State University with a minor in Business Management. I come from a performance background and have spent my early career with the company, Walt Disney World. When I’m not at school, I enjoy teaching ballet, relaxing at home, and spending time with my dog, Pippin. I’m ecstatic that I get to work in an environment where I can use my skills and help the younger generation evolve into young adults!Therapy DogPippin
