Franziska Tietz

2nd Grade Teacher, German Track

Hi, my name is Franziska and I am originally from Berlin. After graduating from high school and

spending a year as an au pair in Connecticut, I enrolled at the University of Potsdam, where I

obtained my bachelor's degree in teaching German and English. An Erasmus semester in Dublin,

Ireland, sparked my interest in children’s literature. From there I pursued a master’s degree in

German literature at the Freie Universität Berlin. In addition to my work as an editor in a children’s

book publishing house, I worked at the Goethe-Institut in Boston and Berlin, because my love for the

German language and literature always went hand in hand with my passion for cross-cultural

exchange which offers exceptional moments to gain new perspectives and self-growth. In 2022, my

husband had the opportunity to work in Portland and our family of four decided to move to the

Pacific Northwest. I am excited to help your children learn and grow in this unique learning

environment and to be part of the GIS community!
