    Hello Families!

    Welcome to Bruce F. Vento Elementary School!  My name is Nathan Bautista and I am so happy to be your child’s Pre-Kindergarten teacher!  This will be my first year of teaching.  I have been in education for over 6 years!  Before teaching, I was a manager for a major retail store.  I was getting burnt out and my husband recognized that I work well with children.  I have always wanted to be a teacher, ever since I was a child.  So, I started the process to become one back in 2018.

    To start off, I want to tell you a little bit about myself both personally and professionally.  I grew up in South Dakota.  I have been living in Minnesota since 2012.  I am a recent graduate from Metropolitan State University located right here in St. Paul.  I majored in Urban Early Childhood Education: Birth to 3rd Grade Licensure.  I enjoy spending time with my husband, Ezequiel and our pug, Fernando!  In our spare time, we love to walk the lakes of the twin cities, spend time at our family cabin, and play with & walk our dog.  My husband is also a teacher and is opening his own Montessori school!

    I believe in having an inclusive environment where all children are included in learning and play!  I encourage my students to be young independent thinkers.  I am also a firm believer in Positive Behavior Guidance.  In our classroom, our students create a small community to help each other out. I am so excited about teaching at Bruce F. Vento!  Please email or call me with any questions!
