Dr. Natalia Harding I really like working with children and I love to watch them achieve their goals. It is very exciting to see them happy as a result of their accomplishments! I am also thrilled to see that children want to know more about Russian history and culture. Education: I hold pedagogical degrees in history and English language and received ESL teacher training at Bell College in Cambridge. In 2015 I graduated from the school of journalism at Krasnodar State University (Russia), with a PhD in Philology (Journalism). I have extensive experience of working in primary and secondary school. I also taught English as a Foreign Language at a Russian university and worked as an ESL teacher in Cambridge. Describe yourself: It is difficult to talk about yourself, but I hope that other see me as caring and optimistic. Favourite activities: Theatre, spending time with my family, reading, travelling and exploring historical archives. Favourite book: “Winnie the Pooh” is my favourite children’s book. I also like reading historical books and detective stories. What can’t I live without: I know that coffee is not really healthy for you, but I can’t say no to it.
