Guten Tag! Though born in the US, I lived in Germany for 18 years in various cities, such as Berlin and Mannheim. I also attended school while there, completing my final 6 years in a German business vocational high school and earned my Abitur. One goal I have in teaching German is to make it a fun learning experience. I like to bring my experience as an expat into the classroom and share what I learned about the culture, all there is to see, do, and experience there. I’m an enthusiastic, patient, and creative teacher. Language is alive, and I believe playing around with it makes the process of learning enjoyable!
