Hi there! My name is Natalia (Natasha) Ferus, and I am the assistant teacher at the 2 year old class. I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. I was 17 when I came to Pennsylvania to attend a university and there I met my future husband, who emigrated from Poland when he was 9. We moved to Maryland in 2006. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration but have had various jobs that I enjoyed, including a front desk agent/trainer at a Ritz Carlton Hotel. My daughter did not attend Emmanuel, but my son did, and we loved the school, so when the opportunity arose for me to work here, I gladly accepted. I had a great time working with the little ones, and I feel very lucky to be surrounded by great colleagues who are also fantastic mentors. Our family loves to travel, try different foods and host friends.
