I began teaching at Brookwood High School in September 2012. I have gained tremendous knowledge of international student diversity and various societal customs from traveling extensively to, and living eight years, in the Brandenburg providence of Berlin, Germany. In addition, I have learned about various aspects of the University System of Georgia and the Banner Student Information System while teaching elementary & intermediate level German courses at Georgia State University. This experience has allowed me to have a strong working relationship with students and faculty, while also being involved with university campus programs and workshops. I also have a strong academic background in German business, literature, and linguistics. Currently, I teach German levels I,II,III and AP at Brookwood High School.
