Guten Tag! This is my sixth year teaching at the Eastside German Language School. The kids are amazing and unique and curious. This year I have “Unterstufe 1” which I call lower level 1. We have several students who speak and read German, as well as several students new to German. We concentrate on speaking, reading and writing. We have fun!
Me, I love ALL things German, Swiss and Austrian. Love the cultures, language, countries and people. Way back in elementary school, my father was in the US Air Force and we spent 4 years in Germany (Wiesbaden AFB and Ramstein AFB). In high school in Pennsylvania, I met my best friend who was from Germany. Her family became my second family and my love for the German language and culture bloomed. After majoring in math at the University of Florida (minoring in German), I received a scholarship from the German American Wives Club to attend the University of Heidelberg. After my scholarship year, I taught high school math in FL one year before working for the US Bureau of the Census as a statistician. In Virginia, I earned my Master’s Degree in German at George Mason University. My husband and I moved here to the Seattle area in 1997 and have 3 bilingual kids. I taught German at Highline Community College for 3 years. Currently, I am a substitute teacher in the Kent School District when I am not busy with family and German.
