Nat has worked as a college-level instructor of courses in a variety of disciplines, including English and Spanish. He has also been a substitute teacher at IDEA Public Schools in Austin.
"I believe in incorporating a student-centered approach into my teaching practice. Instead of the instructor always-lecturing and student always-listening, reversing these roles—and allowing the student to take control—can foster learning in a deeper, more lasting way. No one approach is always right, however, and I believe being able to adapt to each particular moment in the classroom is most important.”
Nat is an avowed cinephile, spending many of his free hours traversing film history looking for movies, new and old, that excite him.
