Hello! I am from Romania where I grew up bilingual German and Romanian. I studied in Germany, in a beautiful small medieval town in Bavaria called Regensburg. I have completed my graduate degree in German Studies in the US. I have over 10 years of experience teaching German at the college level as well as 3 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language to young children. I have travelled extensively in Germany and would love to bring my experiences with German everyday culture and literature to the classroom. I love teaching German not just as a gateway to German culture but also as a means for students to explore linguistic and cultural difference. My classroom is a space where students can feel free to be themselves and have fun learning. I am a flexible, patient, and engaging teacher. I am looking forward to embarking on this amazing language learning journey with you.
