Music that Describes Dr. Natakie

Dr. Natakie Chestnut-Lee was nominated by her colleague, Vanessa Jerkins-Little.

Dr. Chestnut-Lee is an awesome asset in the Pleasantville School District and community in New Jersey. She's a phenomenal team player, encourager, and motivator. She goes above and beyond her job title to make sure everyone is equipped, knowledgeable, and supported. Dr. Chestnut-Lee will roll her sleeves up and get busy in whatever capacity is needed.

"I have been working in the school district for 20 years, and I have never seen anyone work like she does," said Jerkins-Little. "Dr. Chestnut-Lee heart is so warm and giving, with no hesitations. She is definitely a LifeChanger. If you check the Merriam-Webster dictionary for the words 'life' and 'changer,' she would fit both words molded together. If you have any questions about anything, Dr. Chestnut-Lee will take the time to talk with you. She is very caring, lovable, and a genuine person. You will always find Dr. Chestnut-Lee in the community giving back. She has raised the bar in demonstrating district pride, loyalty, commitment, and work ethic. I have never had the pleasure of working with someone with so much capacity, agility, professionalism, and tenacity to handle such a broad range of responsibilities and changing priorities."
