I was born in Mannheim, Germany and graduated from Berufsakademie Mannheim with a Bachelor of Science degree. Over the next few years worked as human resource manager for companies such as Microsoft and IBM.
In 1998 my husband and I moved to Portland where I continued to work for IBM until our first child was born. I discovered my love for teaching and earned my master’s degree in elementary education as well as an ESOL (English as a second language) endorsement. Here at GIS I have taught our younger students in German as a second language and the sciences and math in 5th grade. I love learning something new together with our teaching team and our students.
If I am not at school, I love to spend time hiking, kayaking and tapping into my creative side. I am looking forward to another great year at the German International School and am excited about the opportunity to help students discover their love and appreciation for different cultures and languages and develop into life-long learners.
