Kerstin Burgstaller

Preschool Teacher, German Track

My name is Kerstin and I grew up in a very small town in Lower Austria. 

I came to Portland, Oregon in 2014 as an au pair and took care of two amazing host children. At the time my host children were almost two years and four years old. 

After my au pair year I decided to pursue an AAS Degree in Early Childhood Education and Family Studies at Portland Community College, where I graduated in June 2020. As a part of my degree program, I completed a practicum in the Preschool classroom at the PCC Child Care Center. 

During my three years at PCC, I worked as a German tutor and as a Child Care Aid in the infant and toddlers room at the Child Development Center. 

Throughout my time at PCC I made meaningful connections with teachers and coworkers. Leaving the PCC Community was hard, but I am  excited to join the GIS team to make more meaningful connections with coworkers and students. 

During my free time I enjoy the outdoors and reading a good book. I have been exploring the Pacific Northwest since 2014 and I am always excited to explore more in the future.
