3rd Grade Teacher
I was born in Böblingen and grew up in the Black Forest which is a region in the south of Germany. After working in different business fields like distribution and sales, I studied “European teaching” at the PH Karlsruhe with a focus on bilingual teaching. After I finished my degree, I went on a trip around the world and explored different countries and cultures. From 2012 to 2015, I lived in Stuttgart and worked as a 3rd and 4th grade class teacher as well as teaching English, German and Science in different grade levels.
Oregon and especially Portland have become my new home and it feels good to be here and be a part of the GIS community. I love being around kids and creative and open-minded people who inspire me. In my free time, I like to explore the Oregon coast, go surfing, climbing or do hikes and roadtrips. This will be my third year at GIS and I am looking forward to all the things to come!
