Natalie Rodriguez graduated from OAA in 2009, and from Oakwood university in 2008 with a Bachelor degree in Pre-physical therapy. She is of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent. Being at Oakwood has been an impactful journey in her life. She has been welcomed here and has been shown kindness and been pushed past her limits to achieve something greater.
Natalie loves to teach, and she loves her students. Waking up in the morning to prepare for her students makes Natalie very happy. She wants to teach her students that studying is important and that it will get them farther than they can possibly imagine. But without God whatever goals they have for themselves are meaningless. She wants her students to know that their lives aren’t meaningless, and that is why she is here.
