Meet Natalia

Miss Natalia - On-site Owner - Natalia Elfimova is the proud owner-operator of The Goddard School located in Scottsdale. She has a degree in Literature, Linguistics and Education from St. Petersburg State University, Russia; studied for her MBA at Ottawa University, Canada; and has attended Goddard Systems, Inc.’s Owners' Training. Miss Natalia’s favorite children's book is "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" by Laura Numeroff. She thinks that it is quite a compelling story and has had a lot of similar personal experience. Miss Natalia loves working with children because they are wonderful and very sincere, they don't judge and they love unconditionally. She finds it to be such a thrill and joy when a child comes to you and says, "I love you," or hugs you - you feel like a mommy every time. Miss Natalia loves watching children learn and play. To her, working with children is fun, rewarding and profoundly meaningful. There is no other career choice which will provide you with as many laughs and smiles during the working day.
